David Fincher Won’t Ever Join Social Media to Interact With Fans, Despite Mark Romanek’s Best Efforts

Bad news for anyone hoping for a David Fincher Instagram page.

What would David Fincher’s Instagram page look like? Unfortunately, we’ll never know. Fincher’s good friend and fellow director Mark Romanek published an email exchange between the two men on his Instagram page, and it hilariously features a very blunt Fincher turning down a fan asking for Fincher-run social media pages.

Instagram user philip.mcnroe asked Romanek: “Can you talk David Fincher into using social media and interacting with his fans, please?” Romanek forwarded the question to Fincher via email, to which the “Gone Girl” director only had this to say: “Dear Philip, NO.”

Fincher is notoriously private and usually only talks to select publications when he has a new project out (his “Mindhunter” press tour, for instance, was extremely limited), so it’s not entirely surprising to hear he’s avoiding interacting with fans on social media. The director is at work on the second season of his Netflix serial killer drama “Mindhunter” and currently has no film plans on his docket.

The director was last on the big screen with “Gone Girl” in fall 2014. “Mindhunter” isn’t expected to return to Netflix until late 2018 or 2019.
