The director Brad Anderson, artifice of the Netflix series 'The Sinner', directs this thriller with Oscar nominee Rosamund Pike and Jon Hamm. 'The Negotiator' tells the story of Mason Skiles (Jon Hamm), one of the most important diplomats in the United States who left Lebanon in the 70s after a tragic incident. The collateral damage of civil war is all-encompassing and unforgiving; a brutal setting for tense negotiations, especially when the results could have monumental consequences. Ten years later, the CIA calls him back to a Beirut ravaged by war with a mission that only he can fulfill. Meanwhile, a CIA agent (Rosamund Pike) who works undercover at the US embassy is tasked with keeping Skiles alive and ensuring the mission is a success. Without knowing who is on his side and with lives at stake, Skiles must overcome all obstacles to expose the truth. Hide full plot... Show full plot

Trivia The Negotiator

Writer-producer Tony Gilroy revealed to Kevin Smith at the IMDb Studio at Sundance 2018 that Beirut (2018) was sprung from political conversations he had with a fellow producer on the set of Pasión por el triunfo (1992), which Gilroy wrote. The period of principal photography on this picture, according to producer Monica Levinson, was just thirty-three days.
