10 June 2013

Birthday
Andrew Niccol b. 1964

Mr. Niccol's best known work in genre is as writer and director of Gattaca, S1m0ne and In Time. My favorite work of his is probably his screenplay from The Truman Show, not really sci-fi or fantasy exactly but a very interesting alternate reality.

Many happy returns of the day to Mr. Niccol.
