New Star Trek Movie: An Expensive Comedy?

The Star Trek movie is looking more like a comedy all the time. John Cho (Harold from Harold and Kumar) will play Sulu, and Simon Pegg (Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) will play Scotty. Also, Christopher Pine is still trying to decide between playing Kirk and starring in cop movie White Jazz. Still uncast: Doctor McCoy, original Enterprise captain Christopher Pike, and Kirk's parents. The other big Trek news? Sources say the film's budget is creeping upwards of $160 million — more than any Trek movie has ever made at the box office. Can you say flying bomb? Image by APImages
