Nikki Finke, the former editor-in-chief of Deadline.com and current proprietor of NikkiFinke.com, broke news on Sunday that plans were in motion for "Father of the Bride 3" with Steve Martin set to star. On Monday, Martin threw cold water on her claims via Twitter:
So excited to read I'm doing Father of the Bride 3 since I haven't seen a script or been offered the role!

Finke's original post cited an anonymous source who claimed that "Father of the Bride 3" would focus on a gay wedding.
