Ben Affleck to star as The Accountant
Ben Affleck is in talks to star in The Accountant, the action thriller that Warner Bros is developing, after picking it up out of turnaround from Sony Pictures. Will Smith was once attached to the project when it was at Sony.
The story centers on a mild-mannered accountant who moonlights as a lethal assassin. Bill Dubuque has written the screenplay.
Gavin O’Connor (“Warrior”) is the studio’s top choice to direct, but no offer has been made yet.
