Star Trek, the upcoming film by J.J. Abrams, reportedly has a budget of over $150 million dollars.
"According to our contact, the film initially had a budget of $130 million but now J.J has been handed a few extra biccies," reported Moviehole, citing "reliable word from inside the cream buildings on Melrose."
The source stated that Abrams' budget has been raised to "the environs of $150-160 million" - which would be considerably larger than the budget for Star Trek Nemesis or previous films in the franchise.
"It’s a huge story they’re doing - and boy does it sound orgasmic, even for a Non-Trekkie like me," added writer Clint Morris. "It's a 'major gamble' for Paramount, says our insider."
