Jay Baruchel will be The Sorcerers Apprentice

Tropic Thunder’s Jay Baruchel is busy negotiating to join Disney’s new, live-action version of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

Nicolas Cage is already aboard to play the magician searching for a new recruit in a tale set in modern-day New York.

Cage’s National Treasure director John Turteltaub is behind the camera for the pic.

How To Train Your Dragon

After Tropic Thunder, Baruchel has become something of a go-to guy for DreamWorks: he’s romantic comedy She’s Out Of My League for the studio and How To Train You Dragon for its animation arm.

And if you’ve never seen it, we highly recommend Baruchel’s debut in Judd Apatow’s swiftly cancelled but ace TV college comedy Undeclared.
