“The Accountant”: Ben Affleck returns in the sequel to the famous film

However, “The Accountant 2” will not be produced by Warner Bros., as was the case with the first part, but by Amazon MGM.

Let us recall that in the 2016 production, Ben Affleck played the role of Christian Wolff, a mathematical genius who has more in common with numbers than with people. Under the cover of a small-town accounting office, he works for the most dangerous criminal organizations in the world as an independent accountant.

When the Treasury Department’s criminal enforcement division, led by Ray King (JK Simmons), becomes increasingly interested in him, Christian begins working with a legitimate client – a modern company specializing in robotics. Her accountant (Anna Kendrick) discovered millions of dollars in discrepancies. However, when Christian manages to obtain a true picture of the company’s financial situation and come closer to discovering the truth, the number of victims begins to increase dangerously.

For directing “The Accountant” Gavin O’Connor was responsible for the script, and Bill Dubuque wrote the script. Both are expected to reprise their roles for the sequel. Affleck is expected to return in the lead role. Other stars of the first movie are also expected to appear in the film: Simmons, Jon Bernthal and Cynthia Addai-Robinson.
