MALIBU – Famed pop music video director David Fincher has launched a Kickstarter campaign to buy himself a house in Malibu.
“I have a house in Beverly Hills and a nice apartment on Central Park West in New York, but I’d like a house in Malibu” the Alien 3 director explained. “There’s one I have my eye on, but it’s 27 million dollars, which is quite a lot, so I thought I’d launch this campaign so everyone who wants to can contribute to buying me a mansion.”
But don’t you have enough money to just buy it yourself?
Oh hell yes, I’m stinking rich. But thing I’ve found is if I spend the money – like if I buy a house or a car – then that money is kind of gone. I can’t use it again. This way, if we raise enough money, I get the house and then I get to keep my money and use it for other shit.
Fincher’s career began when he shot a ground breaking video for Frankie Goes to Hollywood or someone, and went on to scale epic heights with such classics as Panic Room and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Having run out of ideas, Fincher now prefers to steal ideas from Scandinavian film makers, and spend his time laughing at the misfortunes of others.
