Yesterday, Nikki Finke reported that a new Father of the Bride film was in the works, but Steve Martin debunked that rather quickly and today Nikki has some more egg on her face as her latest Ghostbusters 3 scoop has also been debunked almost as quickly as she reported it. Keep swinging for the fences Nikki. Note: Finke has deleted her story from her site, but you can still read what she wrote below.

"Ghostbusters 3 has taken an unexpected and not uninteresting twist as it torturously makes its way to the big screen. Ghostbusters3I’ve just heard that screenwriter Max Landis (Chronicle) is working on a new draft for Ghostbusters 3 with a three-week turnaround. Landis, of course, is the son of director John Landis and costume designer/historian Deborah Nadoolman Landis. "Landis probably is doing more of a ‘polish’ than a Page 1 rewrite," says one source. "Not huge changes, but could be cool," another tells me." - Nikki Finke

Looks like Nikki's recent scoops have been nothing but hot air.

Kevin Smith never really confirmed Nikki's DC scoop. Sounds like Finke needs Deadline mo re than Deadline needing Nikki.

Who gives a hot s*** about this franchise anymore. It's been in development hell for way too long. Move on to something else.

Uh-oh, Nikki's career is quickly taking a nosedive.

Who is this Nikki Finke doofus? Everything she reports is utter bullshit. Does she just sit around making shit up all day?

lol, i'm fine if they make it and fine if they don't. I think it's possible to make a great movie that would do the originals justice and be at the same time something unique and new. That said, I have no idea how it could be done and they're not likely to get it right imo. But, what are we really afraid of? Even if it's terrible, it doesn't wipe the original out of existence. I wasn't happy how the STar Wars prequels ended up, but it didn't ruin episodes 4 through 6 for me.
