Steven M. Lisberger (born April 24, 1951) is an American film director, producer and writer famous for directing Tron in 1982.

Lisberger was born in 1951 in New York City and grew up in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. He is a 1974 graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Lisberger also attended The Hill School in Pottstown.

While attending the museum school, he and five associates formed Lisberger Studios. Their first project of note was Cosmic Cartoon which earned a Student Academy Award nomination in 1973. It was also featured in the Fantastic Animation Festival in 1977. Lisberger directed the production, from 1974–77, of commercials, title sequences and feature segments for such shows as the ABC-TV children's series Make a Wish.

In 1978, after moving to Venice, California, Lisberger and his business partner Donald Kushner conceived and produced a 90-minute animated film, Animalympics, for NBC-TV's aborted coverage of the 1980 Olympics. They have since turned their creative efforts to the development of Tron.

His film Hot Pursuit is one of Ben Stiller's first speaking roles.

Steven and his wife, Peggy, live in Santa Monica, California and have a son named Carl.

Biography

Il débute en réalisant et produisant un film d'animation en 1980, Animalympics. C'est un échec cuisant en raison du boycott des Jeux olympiques d'été à Moscou par les États-Unis et de nombreux pays. Il propose ensuite un projet à Disney qui l’accepte, voulant se diversifier et produire des films de science-fiction. Ce projet est Tron. Il fera la renommée de Steven Lisberger mais sera un demi-échec commercial.

En 2003, il participe à la création de Tron 2.0, conversion en jeu vidéo de Tron.

The film opens with a mysterious man, later referred to as "Byron" (portrayed by Bob Peck), running down a canyon, being harassed by an aeroplane. Byron takes refuge from his pursuers on a precipice overlooking the canyon. The plane lands and its occupants, two obsessive law enforcement officers named Will Tasker and Belitski (Mark Hamill and Kitty Aldridge), chase the man on foot. They shoot the fugitive through the arm with a grappling hook. The fugitive looks at his arm, but does not seem injured, only intrigued. Tasker pulls on the rope now connected to the fugitive. He tumbles down the side of the canyon, but once again is not harmed. Immediately after his fall, the fugitive recites the words of famous World War II aviator and poet John Gillespie Magee, Jr., "I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth - put out my hand and touched the Face of God.", from the poem High Flight.

High school student Dan Bartlett (John Cusack) misses the plane he was supposed to be on with his rich girlfriend and her family on the way to a Caribbean vacation during a school break. He flies there alone, and runs into a series of characters and misadventures as he tries to catch up. Ganja-smoking island natives give him a lift in their vehicle but don't quite make it as the family takes off on a chartered yacht. A crusty old sailor (Robert Loggia) with his own reasons takes up the chase with Bartlett on a decrepit sailboat. Bartlett then runs into corrupt cops and winds up in jail. Finally, he catches up to the yacht, only to find the family has been taken hostage by pirates, and he comes to the rescue.

Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) is a software engineer, formerly employed by the computer corporation ENCOM, who now runs an arcade bar called Flynn's. He wrote several video games, but another ENCOM engineer, Ed Dillinger (David Warner), stole them and passed them off as his own, earning himself a series of promotions until reaching Senior Executive VP. Having left the company, Flynn attempts to obtain evidence of Dillinger's actions by hacking the ENCOM mainframe, but is repeatedly stopped by the Master Control Program (MCP), an artificial intelligence written by Dillinger. However, since its inception the MCP has become power-hungry, illegally appropriating business and even government programs and absorbing them to increase its own capacities; it informs Dillinger of its plans to subjugate The Pentagon and the Kremlin, and expresses interest in China with its request for Chinese-translation programs, blackmailing Dillinger into compliance with records of his theft of the games.
