'Sorcerer's Apprentice' unspools before auction
Jon Turteltaub was in a roasting mood during an auction for the Creative Visions Foundation on Monday, which included a screening of his latest film, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” on the Disney lot in Burbank.The helmer roused the many agents in the house who, he said, “probably didn’t even have to buy a ticket to get in” to purchase autographed guitars, trips to Las Vegas and a chance to spend a weekend with the Phoenix Suns. The pic’s villain, Alfred Molina, signed autographs and posed for pics with the children who came with their parents, including Cuba Gooding Jr. And Andy Summers played a bass guitar autographed by Sting that was later auctioned off for more than $6,000. “We doubled the amount we thought we’d raise tonight,” Turteltaub said of the fundraiser for the artists-activists org.
