After he is done with Batman Vs. Superman, Ben Affleck will tone things down somewhat for a new assassin thriller called “The Accountant”. Since we are fans of Mel Gibson here, we are loosely aware of this project since it was once tied to him. It then moved onto Will Smith before Warner Bros. ditched the entire concept.
It is back alive now though with Affleck in the lead role. or at least he is in talks to.
Affleck is looking to “Warrior” director Gavin O’Connor to helm the project. The Accountant follows a man who is a normal accountant by day and an deadly assassin after dark. I would rather catch this rather than the new Batman flick but I must say that Affleck looks like a better Batman that the previous one too.
