Men in Black 3-D Confirmed: I Told You on April 21st

By Roger Friedman

Hollywoodnews.com: Barry Sonnenfeld’s “Men in Black 3D”, with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones? I told you about this on April 21st, and the story was picked up everywhere.

Still, a blog decided to announce it today like it was their scoop. Boo hoo. Nikki Finke’s penchant for repurposing old stories has finally infected her truly talented New York reporter, Mike Fleming. It makes me sad.

But that said, I did tell you about “Men in Black 3-D” some 17 days ago! I told you Will Smith would do it, and that “MIB” would replace “Spider Man 4,” which was scuttled a few months ago.

This isn’t the first time that Finke’s blog has found old material and presented it as new. I had this problem a few weeks ago when I reported first that Katherine Heigl had left her publicist to return to PMK. Finke ran the story as if she’d gotten the scoop a day later.
