Kid wizard Baruchel

12.03.2008

Gawky comic kid Jay Baruchel is following in the footsteps of other Apatow graduates like Seth Rogen by joining numerous high-profile projects.

The TROPIC THUNDER grunt and "UNDECLARED" student will join Nicolas Cage in Disney's live-action THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE, playing trainee to Cage's wacky wizard. The story is set in modern-day New York, and doesn't seem to have much in common with either the FANTASIA segment or the Goethe poem.

The flick comes from producer Jerry Bruckheimer and is directed by Cage's NATIONAL TREASURE cohort Jon Turtletaub, so you know what that means: lots of aerial shots and chase sequences!

Baruchel is also reuniting with Rogen for JAY AND SETH vs. THE APOCALYPSE, and also appears in FANBOYS, assuming it ever sees any kind of release.

Extra Tidbit: Baruchel co-starred in a made-for-Canadian-TV movie called MATTHEW BLACKHEART: MONSTER SMASHER. Curiously, Nic Cage had once planned to star in a movie called TOM SLICK: MONSTER HUNTER.

John Woo Presents: Hair/Off
Starring: Nicholas Cage and Bruce Willis
They switch hairpieces and go undercover as Ted Dansen and William Shatner. Lots of slow-mo hairpiece flopping.

Man... And here I thought we'd be getting a movie actually based on, well, you know the story's the thing's named after. So much for seeing Christopher Leee as Yen Sid.

Those hairplugs. hairplugs. hairplugs...those hairplugs.

Even though this is probably gonna suck. You would think a live action adaption of this will be overlooked heavily by Disney so that this will have some sort of fighting chance.

This movie doesn't sound to good but when I saw Zack and Miri Make a Porno there was a trailer for Fanboys which looks really funny so it should have a real release.

Awesome comment. Right there is a plot for a Nicolas Cage Direct-to-Dvd slated right at the bargain bin at Wal-Mart.
