I am building out http://t.co/8vaMwz16aD and will unveil it right after the new year. Can't wait to report the real truth about Hollywood.— Nikki Finke (@NikkiFinke) October 25, 2013
Our gal pal Nikki Finke breaks her silence from "vacation" yet again—she'll be out at PMC-owned Deadline.com come the new year to launch her own venture, to tell the "real truth" that apparently Jay Penske has prevented her from doing so the last few years. She goes on to say:
All that's left is for the lawyers to disentangle me from Penske. I have no idea why he has fought so hard to keep me. I'll be free soon.— Nikki Finke (@NikkiFinke) October 25, 2013
So what does this mean for Deadline.com? Was Mike Fleming's increased role at Deadline a signal that he'll be taking over the infamous blog, or will be Nikki taking all her staff with her? Will Nikki have to give back the apartment Penske allegedly bought her? It remains to be seen, but here's one thing we can be sure of: no matter how amicable Finke pretends the resolution may be, when those gloves come off in January, PMC properties are definitely going to be the first target.
