A few images of Nicolas Cage on the set of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice have hit the net. It ends up the production is doing some reshoots in New York City. And before you start jumping to conclusions about what the reshoots mean…almost every movie made does some sort of reshoot. When the movie is being put together in the editing room, or after a test screening, the filmmakers will realize something is missing and they do reshoots to try and fix the problem. Again, not a big deal.
Saying that, if you hear about a movie reshooting for weeks, then it’s safe to jump to a bad conclusion as that means something is really not working. But a few days… no big deal. Hit the jump to check out Cage on the set.

Here’s the synopsis:
Walt Disney Studios, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turteltaub, the creators of the “National Treasure” franchise, present THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE — an innovative and epic comedy adventure about a sorcerer and his hapless apprentice who are swept into the center of an ancient conflict between good and evil.
Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (ALFRED MOLINA). Balthazar can’t do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (JAY BARUCHEL), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. It’ll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE. The screenplay is by Matt Lopez and Doug Miro & Carlo Bernard from a screen story by Matt Lopez and Larry Konner & Mark Rosenthal.
