SpoilerTV has the first set photos showing Monica Bellucci (Passion of the Christ, The Matrix Reloaded) in costume on the set of Jon Turteltaub‘s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Loosely adapted from the classic story from Fantasia, and based in modern-day Manhattan, Nicolas Cage plays Balthazar Blake, a sorcerer who recruits and trains a young protege (Jay Baruchel) to help fight the forces of darkness. Bellucci plays Veronica, a sorceress and the long-lost love of Cage’s character. More photos after the jump. Warning: possible spoilers.
Celebrity illusionist Drake Stone (Toby Kebbell) joins forces with an evil sorcerer named Horvath (Alfred Molina), to “gain ultimate powers.” The film, which has been shooting in New York for the last two months, also features Teresa Palmer (Bedtime Stories) as Baruchel’s love interest. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is set to hit theaters on July 16th 2010.
