A stuntman filming a car chase in Times Square for the new Nicolas Cage movie The Sorcerer's Apprentice crashed his Ferrari into a storefront and two pedestrians suffered minor injuries, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Police said a 23-year-old man was hit by a falling pole and complained of a head injury, and a 21-year-old woman suffered a foot injury. Both injuries were considered minor, and the stuntman driving the car was uninjured.

"On site production medics responded immediately and two pedestrians were taken to the hospital for evaluation," said a statement from the production of The Sorcerer's Apprentice, which is a Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films production.

Due for release in mid-2010, The Sorcerer's Apprentice is the story of a college student reluctantly recruited to work for a sorcerer, played by Cage. Set in contemporary New York, it is based on the segment of the same name from the Disney animated film Fantasia.
