The Sorcerors Apprentice

Jay Baruchel negotiating for ‘Apprentice’

Jay Baruchel is negotiating to play the title role in “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”


Baruchel joins Nicolas Cage, who plays the sorcerer in the Jon Turteltaub-directed live-action pic.

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” takes place in contemporary New York, where a wizard searches for an apprentice.

Baruchel, who co-starred in “Tropic Thunder,” next plays the lead in the romantic comedy “She’s Out of My League.”
