Ben Affleck and Gavin O’Connor back for The Accountant sequel

June 27th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Although not everyone feels the same way (be a boring old world if they did), we at FTN really loved The Accountant.

The movie, directed by Gavin O’Connor and starring Ben Affleck as a math savant with high-functioning autism who works as a forensic accountant and un-cooks the books for unsavory criminal organizations under the glare of law enforcement was something of a bolt out of the blue and was honestly one of our favourite movie’s of the year.

So imagine our excitement to hear that O’Connor and Affleck are coming back for a sequel; although not confirmed yet, it is likely Jon Berthal will also return once the story is worked out.

That’s all that’s known for now but, as always, we’ll keep you posted…

At the end of the first movie, I was really left wanting for more and am really excited to see where the character goes next.

Anyone else excited?

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
