“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Starring Nicolas Cage and Alfred Molina, Films at NYU

The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced, Jon Turteltaub-directed Walt Disney Pictures film The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, starring Nicolas Cage, is filming at the NYU Law building on West 4th Street.  Yesterday traffic was redirected down MacDougal Street to accommodate large technical equipment and lighting that towered over surrounding buildings and Washington Square Park (including a machine that produced a rainstorm – even though it had been raining earlier that day).  Nicolas Cage was nowhere to be found, but stars Jay Baruchel and Teresa Palmer along with several extras were filmed running though the artificial downpour, umbrellas in hand.  A sign was even added to the building itself, so that it could temporarily transform from a law building to a science building, but the signature NYU flag remained in place.

The live-action film, which is based on the segment from Disney animated classic Fantasia, is set in contemporary New York (and probably thanks to New York’s discount film credits, can proudly bear the “Made in NY” stamp as well).  This month, it was announced that Alfred Molina has signed on to the project to play the villain.  The film is to be released on July 16, 2010.
