You might remember back in May I posted two video interviews with screenwriters Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard. The first interview covered their work on National Treasure 3 and Tintin and the second interview covered Prince of Persia: The Sand of Time. At the time, I also talked with them about writing The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, but I decided to wait till closer to release to post it. With the movie set to get released this Wednesday, I thought tonight was a perfect time to post it.
During the interview, they talked about starting work on the project as soon as Prince of Persia wrapped, how they had a lot of pressure to get it done quickly as sets were being built, what it was like to work with Nicolas Cage, did they watch Fantasia before writing, and a lot more. Hit the jump to check it out:
Finally, for more on The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, I attended a press conference with Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel, Teresa Palmer, Toby Kebbell, director Jon Turteltaub & Jerry Bruckheimer and you can watch it by clicking the link and here’s a bunch of movie clips and images.
