The Accountant 2 is reportedly in works with Ben Affleck and Jon Bernthal set to return!
2016 saw Affleck’s surprise smash hit The Accountant directed by Gavin O’Connor.
And it emerges that the director is gearing up for the sequel.
While joining CinemaBlend’s ReelBlend podcast, Gavin O’Connor broke the news about this upcoming venture.
“There will not be a Way Back sequel, but we are doing an Accountant sequel. We literally just closed that deal. We’re doing The Accountant again,” O’Connor said.
The Accountant 2 has to happen so that The Accountant 3 can also be brought to life, O’Connor explained.
He added, “Yeah. Yeah. So, I’ve always wanted to do three because what, the second one’s going to be more with — we’re going to integrate his brother into the story. So there’ll be more screen time for Bernthal in the second one. And then the third movie’s going to be, I call it, ‘Rain Man on steroids.’ The third movie is going to be about the two brothers, this odd couple. The third one is going be a buddy picture.”
Well, there is not much revealed about the new film yet, though Ben Affleck fans won’t have to wait too long to see him again, as he will be seen in Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel in October.
