If you can remember what happens in The Accountant, you're probably a really big Ben Affleck fan, because that demographic can be the only one that reacted to it in any tangible way. At the time of its release, it was somewhat overshadowed by Affleck's Batman situation and grossed only $86m domestically with critics split on whether it was any good.
That's not exactly the kind of foundation you'd expect for a sequel to be sped into development, but Warner Bros clearly saw some potential in bringing Affleck's autistic assassin accountant Christian Wolff back for more. He'll apparently also be joined by his on-screen long-lost brother Brax, played by Jon Bernthal, while Gavin O'Connor was rumoured to be returning to direct.
Everything went a little quiet on it after the announcement, but Affleck has revealed this year (via Collider) that he's still looking to make it:
Yeah, I hope so. I would love to. We’ve talked about kicking some ideas around, this last movie we just did. We talked to the studio and they seemed interested, and they kind of brought it up so, we’re looking to do that. I think it would be fun. I love Gavin, I love the movie I just did with him. I had a great experience and I love the character in The Accountant. I’d certainly be open to it.
