Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has apparently found his villain to play opposite Nicolas Cage for his new film. According to /Film, Alfred Molina has been cast in The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

Nicolas Cage will star as the sorcerer and Jay Baruchel as his apprentice, while Molina has been cast as the evil sorcerer. The story revolves around Baruchel's character who gets in some hot water when the broomstick he enchants to do his chores while the sorcerer is away, develops a mind of its own.

The site is also reporting that the film is gearing up for a production start in New York later this month. We'll certainly keep you posted on any updates surrounding this film.
