Blackline: The Beirut Contract is an upcoming American, low-budget feature film and the first film in the Blackline International Trilogy, a series inspired by controversies surrounding mercenary companies such as Blackwater Worldwide and their recent involvements in the Iraq War.[1] This film has been written and directed by Christian Johnston, who was involved in the making of September Tapes in 2004. The film is a co-production between Big Deal Pictures and Signature Productions, in which the latter is owned by Lebanese-born Nabil Issa, whom convinced his crew to set-up stage and film on-location in Lebanon, despite the recent conflicts at the time.

This film was originally reported to be in post-production, and was supposed to be released in 2008, and later 2009. IMDb now reports that the film is still in-production phase, and is due to be released in 2010 instead. The reasons for the delay are unknown.

The plot of this film revolves around three mercenary soldiers hired by a new private military company - Blackline International - for a high-dollar contract to rescue a man held hostage in Beirut.
