SlashFilm reports a rumor that Alfred Molina (The Da Vinci Code) has been cast in Jerry Bruckheimer's upcoming live-action The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Nicolas Cage stars in a modern-day New York adaptation of the classic story from Fantasia, and Jay Baruchel plays Cage's apprentice, who gets into trouble when the sorcerer is away. The site said Molina will play an evil sorcerer. Molina, who also played Doctor Octopus in Spider-Man 2, just finished another Bruckheimer production, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Teresa Palmer is also on board to play Baruchel's love interest.
