Nicolas Cage (NATIONAL TREASURE: THE BOOK OF SECRETS) will star in a live-action re-imagining of THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE for Walt Disney Pictures, according to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. The fantasy adventure is based on Johann Wolfgang Goethe's original poem that inspired the animated Mickey Mouse sequence from FANTASIA. Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal are scripting; no director is attached yet.
Cage would play a sorcerer in contemporary New York in search of a worthy apprentice.
Cage and his Saturn Film partner Norm Golightly would produce with Todd Garner's Broken Road Prods.
