Early life

Sanders is Jewish, the eldest son of Thalia (née Garlick) and Michael Sanders.[1]


Sanders has directed numerous television advertisements, including one for Halo 3: ODST, which won him two Golden Lions at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.[2] Sanders' first feature film is Snow White and the Huntsman, which was released in the USA in early June 2012. The film's budget was $170 million, including an eight-figure marketing expenditure, and it earned $20.3 million on its opening day in the USA. To date, the film has grossed $396,592,829 at the box office.[3][4] He is set to direct a film adaptation of science fiction manga franchise Ghost in the Shell, with Avi Arad and Steven Paul producing and Scarlett Johansson starring in the main role.[5][6]

Personal life

Sanders married model Liberty Ross,[7] sister of Oscar-winning composer Atticus Ross,[8] in 2002.[9] Though both Sanders and Ross are British, they moved to Los Angeles to further Sanders' career.[9] Together they have two children, daughter Skyla and son Tennyson. In July 2012, Us Weekly published photos of Sanders cheating on Ross with actress Kristen Stewart,[10] prompting Sanders and Stewart to issue separate public apologies.[11][12][13] Ross subsequently filed for divorce from Sanders in January 2013, seeking joint custody, spousal support, and legal fees.[14] The divorce was finalized on 30 May 2014.[15]
