Teresa Palmer has nabbed the female lead in Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, starring Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Taking its cues from the classic Goethe and Paul Dukas-inspired Mickey Mouse portion of Fantasia, the live-action feature centers on an apprentice (Baruchel) who is left to tend to a magic workshop when his sorcerer master (Cage) leaves it in his hands. The apprentice gets a broomstick to do his chores for him, but things get out of control when the broom develops a mind of its own.
Palmer is playing Baruchel’s love interest.
Jon Turteltaub is directing; Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.
