Researcher David Meade Meade predicted in his book Planet X – The 2017 Arrival, the mythical system would be visible in our skies from September 23.
He had gone quiet on the subject after Nibiru failed to pass us last month – on a date of which he prophesied.
Now he has told how David Taylor, an investigative journalist with the Rocky Mountain News from a shadowy observatory official codenamed Willis, has received conclusive photographic proof Nibiru exists and is about to strike us within the next 72 hours.
It sounds like the fictional plot of a Hollywood armageddon blockbuster movie… probably because it IS.
Mr Meade, who made headlines across the globe from September, due to his off-key prediction, has gone from doom prophet to screenwriter.
Writing over four connected articles on the PlanetXnews.com website, Mr Meade outlined a treatment for such a film.
NIBIRU THE MOVIE: David Meade has gone from theory to fiction with Planet X.
The Nibiru myth emerged in 1976, when writer Zecharia Sitchin claimed two ancient Middle Eastern cultures, the Babylonians and Sumerians, told of a giant planet dubbed Nibiru which orbited the Sun.
The Nibiru or Planet X theory claims a mini solar system consisting of a sun, planets and moons is lurking on the edge of our system with a huge 3,600 miles orbit of the sun.
Nibiru believers are convinced the “rogue system” is making its way from the outer solar system inwards, where it will wreak havoc on Earth as it passes at about four million miles away.
They say the planet will cause the poles to switch, sparking great earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
After nothing happened in October – when it was originally supposed to hit – believers now claim it will be on an approach path with the Earth between November 20 and December 20.
Now Mr Meade hopes to turn the conspiracy theory into a box office smash.
He wrote: “This is a Feature Film Treatment which is high concept and suitable for any major production company.
“It is extremely visual (with locations in California, Arizona, Chile and Argentina), targets a broad audience, and sparks a most fascinating ‘what if’ question: What if the stories behind Planet X are real?
“What if the government is watching its inbound approach, but not telling the public and instead engaging in a massive cover-up?
“This is an incredible true story based upon my best-selling nonfiction books on Planet X.”
Mr Meade’s blurring of the lines between fiction and conspiracy theory, will no doubt fuel cynics who suggest that doom mongers such as he predict the end of the world to cash in on book and film sales.
It also begs the question why would someone who believed we were in the “final days” be looking to long-term movie projects that may take years to come to fruition.
After his October deadline for the passing of Nibiru came and went, Mr Meade appeared to go quiet about the Nibiru timescale, until revealing details about his planned film on October 23.
What if the government is watching its inbound approach, but not telling the public and instead engaging in a massive cover-up? This is an incredible true story based upon my best-selling nonfiction books on Planet X.
Express.co.uk sent him a series of questions to see if we could get the latest on his Nibiru prophecy.
We asked: “Nothing has happened in October, as you said it would this time.
“What comment can you make about that please?
“Is it time to accept that Nibiru will not pass the earth in 2017 as predicted in your book?
“Many people would be willing to bet their last pound or dollar on there being no sign of Nibiru in 2017.
“Could you please comment on that as well?
“Would you go as far as to say that you may have got it wrong and Nibiru does not in fact exist?
“Cynics often argue that people prophecise the end of the world in order to sell books etc, as away of making money.
“What is your view of this and is this something you are doing yourself with the whole Nibiru prophecy and the book?”
We allowed Mr Meade more than three days to respond, and so far, have yet to hear back.
Meanwhile, scores of other armchair and YouTube prophets continue to claim it is coming, by moving the goal posts when dates come and go.
Of course, if you believe the conspiracy theorists, NASA is engaged in a massive cover up and knows Nibiru is about to strike.
However, reassuringly, NASA’s official line is that conspiracy theorists such as Mr Meade are completely wrong, and the Nibiru myth is an internet hoax.
Dr David Morrison, a scientist with the space agency, said: “There is no credible evidence whatever for the existence of Nibiru.
“There are no pictures, no tracking, no astronomical observations.
“I can quite specifically say how we know Planet X or Nibiru does not exist and does not threaten Earth.
“Firstly, if there was a planet headed into the inner solar system that was going to come close to the Earth, it would already be inside the orbit of Mars, it would be bright, it would be easily visible to the naked eye – if it was up there it would be easy to see it, all of us could see it.”
Space boffin Dr Brian Cox has also insisted Planet X does not exist.
And associate Professor Jonti Horner, an astronomer at the University of Southern Queensland in Australia, said: “I’ve never heard of anybody who’s an actual astronomer talk about Nibiru before.
“It’s basically an urban myth — it’s like having a biologist coming out and talking about werewolves and the Sasquatch being real. You just wouldn’t hear it.”
