Sorcerer's Apprentice Accident Ends in Multiple Injuries, Free Pizza
Megaproducer Jerry Bruckheimer's honorable life's mission to bring us the most spectacular chase sequences, slo-mo explosions, and ham-fisted dialogue $150 million of Disney's money can buy resulted yesterday in dire circumstances: A Times Square location shoot for The Sorcerer's Apprentice -- which stars Nicolas Cage in a modern retelling of the classic conjuring tale that somehow involves speeding Ferraris -- went horribly awry when a stunt driver crashed into a Sbarro's.
While there were no serious injuries, a female bystander was grazed, and the impact toppled a lamppost onto a 23-year-old man. (Both should be receiving their "Ha Ha! Sorry About That! How About a Walk-On and Some Face Time with Mr. Cage?" conciliatory muffin baskets from "all your friends at Disney legal!" any moment now.) Neither Cage nor costar Jay Baruchel were anywhere near the set, but as New York Post's video plainly shows, Cage's stunt double has the shaken look of a man who just glimpsed his demise in an overturned bowl of garlic knots, compounded by the senselessness of having given his life in the service of a Nicolas Cage movie no one is going to remember one week after it comes out.
