Palmer Joins “Sorcerer’s Apprentice”

Teresa Palmer (“Bedtime Stories,” “The Grudge 2”) has landed the female lead in Disney’s “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The live-action feature, inspired by the classic Mickey Mouse portion of 1940 animated classic “Fantasia”, centers on an apprentice (Jay Baruchel) who is left to tend to a magic workshop when his sorcerer master (Niicolas 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 while Jerry Bruckheimer is producing.
