Hal Lieberman

Hal Lieberman began his entertainment career as a screenwriter and then moved into the studio system. Almost ten years ago, he branched out on his own, serving as executive producer on The Jackal, starring Bruce Willis and Richard Gere, before teaming up with Jonathan Mostow to form Mostow-Lieberman Productions. He then served as executive producer of the action film U-571 and produced the blockbuster Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, both directed by Mostow. Most recently, he produced a new version of the adventure classic Around the World in 80 Days starring Jackie Chan. His forthcoming films include the Sony/Screen Gems thriller Vacancy and the Sony comedy Big Man on Campus, which begins shooting in April.

Lieberman's experience at Universal Pictures has given him the knowledge to be a success outside of the studio. He was first hired as a production executive and then moved up through the ranks, eventually becoming president of production for the studio. He was named director of development in 1987, and then promoted to vice-president in 1989, senior vice-president in 1990, executive vice-president in 1992 and, finally, president of production in 1994.

During his tenure, Lieberman developed and supervised a diverse slate of films, including: Apollo 13, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Nutty Professor, Liar Liar, Death Becomes Her, Dragonheart, The River Wild, The Paper, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore and Problem Child.
