Ben Affleck starrer The Accountant was a surprise hit when it released in 2016. Despite lukewarm reactions from the critics, the audience loved the action thriller. The film was produced on a budget of $44 million and garnered $155million at the global box office. There were praises for the film’s portrayal of Indonesian martial arts, Pencak silat. There have been some rumours about a possible sequel, with the protagonist of the film Ben Affleck intending his desire to work on one as well.

The Accountant- Plot Summary

The Accountant is about Christian Wolff, a certified public accountant with high-functioning autism. He helps criminal and terrorist organizations around the world and acts as a secret informant for FinCEN, informing them about criminals when they fail to live up to his moral code. Chris takes on a client called Living Robotics, when the CEO of that company Lamar Blackburn (John Lithgow) is informed about an embezzlement of over $61 million, from in-house accountant Dana Cummings (Anna Kendrick). Things take a turn for the worse when Chris discovers that the CEO himself was the embezzler, and had also gotten his sister, Rita Blackburn (Jean Smart) killed. FinCEN is informed about Living Robotics via the Voice, an unidentified woman who was the thread of communication between Chris and his clients.

As Chris heads to the Lamar mansion, he is confronted by the hitman who had killed the CFO of Living Robotics. The fight between the two happens, during which Chris discovers that the hitman is actually his brother, Braxton (Jon Bernthal). During this confrontation, Lamar Blackburn is shot dead by Chris. He agrees to meet Braxton in a week, saying that he will find him. As the film nears the end, it is revealed that the Voice is actually Justine, who had met Chris when he had come to Harbor Neuroscience with his father.

The Accountant 2- Who could be returning for the sequel?

Ben Affleck has stated his desire to work with director Gavin O’Connor for a sequel to the film. We can expect to see Jon Bernthal returning to his role as Braxton. Anna Kendrick and J.K. Simmons could also be back to their roles of Dana Cummings and Ray King. As for a sequel, there is no concrete news yet, but there have been talks of a television series as well, based on the character Christian Wolff.
