Wells, Simon

Tagged: Film | People

(1961-    ) UK animator and director, great-grandson of H G Wells and protegé of Steven Spielberg. He branched out into live action with The Time Machine (2002), and into Robert Zemeckis's performance-capture technology with Mars Needs Moms (2011), which he also co-wrote with his wife Wendy. Both offered a revisionist Hollywood take on original Wellsian themes; both were notable flops. [NL]
