The Accountant Sequel in the Works, Ben Affleck Eyes Return


Warner Bros reportedly has a sequel in the pipeline for the action drama film The Accountant, with its star Ben Affleck in talks to return. However, it would seem that Warner Bros. has faith in The Accountant being able to bring in more viewers as the studio has apparently chose to move forward with a sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter has news of the Accountant sequel coming together at Warner Bros. with Ben Affleck returning in the lead role, a mathematics savant named Chris who is great with numbers but not so good with people, held back by his autistic tendencies. According to Deadline, those deals are now being worked out, after which they will then move onto working out the story itself.

"The Accountant", made for an estimated $44 million, grossed more than $86 million domestically as part a worldwide total of over $155 million. The article also notes that the first film's Jon Bernthal is likely to return as well.

Director Matt Reeves has confirmed that Ben Affleck is still set to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming standalone feature The Batman. Of course first deals need to be worked out with Affleck and the producers, screenwriter and director before other members of the cast can be decided upon, but it would certainly make sense for Bernthal's character to return as well.

While The Batman is not expected to go into production until early next year, Affleck will be seen donning the cape and cowl later this year when Justice League hits theaters this fall.
