The Accountant was Ben Affleck’s entry into the silent badass genre of film. And the sequel to The Accountant will be the next installment in White Men Kill Things. We’ve spoken to our industry contacts and these are the details we can reveal, so far.
It is being confirmed by other sources that a sequel is coming. Well … duh. We told you so, people. Affleck is on board because he was the bomb in phantoms, yo.
The Plot of The Accountant 2
Most people know that Ben Affleck’s big break was in Mallrats. After that, it was Good Will Hunting. He won an Oscar for writing that one, alongside his buddy, Matt Damon. It was about a smart guy who is discovered and yada yada. There was always a rumor that the early draft of the film included secret spies and shooting and a lot more action.
I absolutely believe that The Accountant was Affleck finally getting to show his version of Good Will Hunting. He plays an autistic murderer who likes numbers and whose brother is The Punisher. Oh, and Anna Kendrick is also slightly on the spectrum and also likes numbers. Attractive Retard is a new demographic for Hollywood, it seems.
In The Accountant 2, they’ll just pick up where they left off. Affleck and Punisher and Kendrick will all be buddies and murder evil gangsters as they’re on the run and all that stuff. And the super computer that Affleck bought his old best friend, also an aspie, will return as the voice who gives him missions. An Autistic version of Charlie from Charlie’s Angels, basically.
The Accountant 2 DIRECTOR
Gavin O’Connor directed The Accountant and maybe he could do the second. Or perhaps Luc Besson. He did it with Taken and all that so he’d know the notes to hit.
The Accountant 2 name is…

No Accounting for Taste
Affleck Goes Full Retard

The Accountant 2 TRAILER
This is the first film’s trailer. Expect a repeat but with a hint of irony.
The Accountant 2 WILL BE WRITTEN BY
Bill Dubuque will be back to write the second of this world class film series. Expect Affleck to also be involved, especially as a producer.
The Accountant 2 RELEASE DATE
October 14, 2019 is when The Accountant 2 will hit theaters. It’ll be a fine fall film. Little overhead, great potential for profit.
The Accountant 2 BOX OFFICE
The Accountant cost $44m to make and has made triple that in box office success, at $153m. And that’ll only grow in time.
This is why they keep making Taken movies. To give you an idea, here is the cost and gross for the first three Taken films:
- Taken: $22m cost; $226m box office
- Taken 2: $43m cost; $376m box office
- Taken 3: $55m cost; $326.5m box office
In total, the first three Taken films cost a combined $118m to produce and have brought in just shy of ONE BILLION DOLLARS! You just don’t find profit like that every day. Ben Affleck, in particular, needs this. Now. Or else it’ll be more shitty Batman films.
