This is news to Seppin’s ears…Warner Bros. is all set for a sequel to 2016’s sleeper hit, The Accountant, with Ben Affleck in talks to return as the star.
Writer Bill Dubuque and director Gavin O’Connor are also in talks for the sequel, which followed a highly functioning autistic man who worked as an accountant for criminal organizations. When the Treasury Department starts to follow his activities, he uses his background as an assassin to protect himself and others. No word yet on if Anna Kendrick or Jon Bernthal will reprise their roles.
We actually really enjoyed this movie and encourage you to watch it if you haven’t seen it already. The ending was quite the twist and we are looking forward to seeing what else they do with this character. Perhaps it will be on the lines of a Jason Bourne type franchise?
