Jon Turteltaub Talks ‘The Sorcerer's Apprentice’

With the success of the National Treasure films, how was it like to work with Nicolas Cage in a different type of film, especially with a film that is very visual effect driven?

Jon Turteltaub: Nic and I had a great conversation before starting this film. Basically, we talked about how he let me take the reins in a lot of ways on National Treasure. That was such a buttoned-up character with a lot of intellectual and historical mumbo-jumbo to say. Balthazar, however, is a renegade... an outsider... a rock-and-roll-style hero. So this time, I let Nic take me on the ride... and I loved it.

EXCLUSIVE: Teresa Palmer Talks ‘The Sorcerer's Apprentice’!

Teresa Palmer talks The Sorcerer's Apprentice Australian actress Teresa Palmer has been generating a lot of buzz in Hollywood for sometime now due in large part to her attachment to two high profile projects that she ended up not participating in. She first gained the attention of fan-boys everywhere when director George Miller cast her as the evil Talia al Ghul, daughter of Batman villain Ra's al Ghul, in the unmade film, Justice League Of America based on the popular DC Comics' book. While ultimately that film did not get made, it did put the actress on the map and she next gained attention when rumors began to fly that Miller had cast her in his upcoming forth chapter of the popular Mad Max series, entitled Fury Road. But in an interview that we conducted last month, the actress confessed that she had to back out of that project due to scheduling conflicts with the Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg produced film I Am Number Four, which she will appear in early next year.

To begin with, you mentioned in an earlier interview that you feel like your character, Becky, is the key to David (Jay Baruchel) unleashing his potential as a sorcerer, can you talk about that idea and how it helped you in the course of making the film?

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: ‘The Sorcerer's Apprentice’ Cast and Crew Featurette

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and actor Nicolas Cage have been making box office hits together for over a decade. It began with their collaborations on a string of extremely successful action films for The Walt Disney Company's Touchstone Pictures in the late '90s and early '2000s, which included The Rock, Con Air and Gone in Sixty Seconds. In 2004, the producer and star teamed with director Jon Turteltaub (Phenomenon) to make the family-friendly, action-adventure/mystery film National Treasure for Walt Disney Pictures, which was so popular that it spawned a sequel, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, in 2007. Now the three accomplished filmmakers have collaborated once again on a new family-friendly film for Walt Disney Pictures entitled, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, which opens on July 14th. The film is an updated version of the famous Mickey Mouse segment from the classic Disney animated film, Fantasia, and takes place in modern day New York. We recently had a chance to sit down and speak with the stars of the film Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder, How To Train Your Dragon), Teresa Palmer (Bedtime Stories) and Toby Kebbell (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), as well as the film's director, Jon Turteltaub, and it's producer Jerry Bruckheimer, to discuss the new movie, the challenges of adapting the classic animated film, how Cage's interest in Merlin was the catalyst for the project and the specific differences between sorcery and wizardry. To watch our exclusive interview please click on the video clip below.

Dave (Baruchel) is just an average college student, or so it appears, until the sorcerer Balthazar Blake (Cage) recruits him as his reluctant protégé and gives him a crash course in the art and science of magic. Blake is a master sorcerer living in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina). As these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness in modern-day Manhattan, Dave finds it is going to take all of the courage he can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
