In 2016, production company Warner Bros. Pictures premiered the movie The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, Jon Bernthal and JK Simmons. It will finally come true.
More than 5 years later, the film’s director, Gavin O’Connor, stated during ReelBlend Podcast That famous actor Ben Affleck and Jon Bernthal will be reuniting for a sequel to The Accountant, and they literally just closed that deal.
O’Connor doesn’t just set his eyes on a sequel, but during the episode he clarified that the main reason he wanted to make a sequel to The Accountant was to pave the way for a third sequel and a trilogy of this iconic work.
Yeah so I wanted to do a trilogy, the second part will see Chris’ brother ‘brother’ incorporated into the story, so there will be more screen time for Birthnal with this part, and then the third movie which I call Rain Man on steroids which will be about the two brothers .
Of course, we still don’t know when the production of the second season of The Accountant will begin or even who Affleck and Berthnal will be with, but that’s reason enough for us to be excited about the work.
