The Accountant 2 Cast, Plot, Rumors, and Release Date & News

The Accountant 2 (2019) Cast, Plot, Rumors, and Release Date & News

After what felt like an eternity (or just shy of a decade), The Accountant 2 is finally moving from the land of legends to the stark reality of production schedules. Yes, under the illustrious banner of Amazon MGM Studios, this cinematic unicorn is trotting its way into existence.

Director Gavin O’Connor, the puppet master behind the scenes, has grand plans to give Jon Bernthal more screen time. Because, obviously, what the sequel to a movie about an accountant-slash-assassin needs is more of the brotherly love angle, and while we’re at it, why not daydream about a trilogy?

Following the subtly explosive events of the first film in 2016, the sequel promises to dive deeper into the life of Ben Affleck’s Christian Wolff. In case you’ve been living under a rock, he’s the accountant with a very particular set of skills, skills he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make him a nightmare for people who engage in financial discrepancies.

Screenrant spills the beans on this eagerly awaited action-packed return, noting that The Accountant 2 managed to snag some sweet, sweet tax incentives from California’s Film and Television Tax Credit Program. Because nothing says “blockbuster action movie” like tax incentives, right?

The Plot Thickens

As the dust settles from the initial excitement, a report by Deadline brings us back to earth with a gentle reminder that this movie has been a long time coming, teasing us since 2017.

But fear not, for Gavin O’Connor has decreed that not only is The Accountant 2 happening, but it’s happening with Ben Affleck and Jon Bernthal back to reprise their roles. Because what’s a sequel without the original gang back together, am I right?

In a move that shocked no one, O’Connor also dashed any hopes for a sequel to The Way Back, choosing instead to focus on this financial thriller.

But wait, there’s more! O’Connor, in a moment of sheer creative brilliance, hints at a third installment. Picture this: Rain Man on steroids.

Yes, you read that right. We’re talking a full-on buddy movie with Affleck and Bernthal as the dynamic duo, presumably crunching numbers and taking names in a high-stakes, odd couple bromance for the ages.

Ben Affleck, ever the tease, hinted at the sequel’s possibility in an interview back in 2019, expressing his keen interest in revisiting the character of Christian Wolff. Because, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to step back into the shoes of a math savant with lethal combat skills?


While details on The Accountant 2 remain as elusive as Christian Wolff’s moral compass, the mere prospect of seeing Affleck and Bernthal team up again is enough to keep us all on tenterhooks. So, here’s to hoping the sequel delivers on its promises and doesn’t end up being a by-the-numbers affair.
