Ben Affleck has taken some time out from his Batman Duties to embark on a new role in The Accountant and today see’s the release of its trailer.
Affleck, who has officially recently been announced as the Director behind the next Batman film, stars as Christian Wolff, a freelance accountant for a bunch of bad guys.
The Accountant is directed by Gavin O’Connor, the man behind films such as Miracle, Pride and Glory and Warrior. The film also stars Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick (“Up in the Air,” “Into the Woods”), Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash,” the “Spider-Man” films), Jon Bernthal (“Fury,” “The Wolf of Wall Street”), Jean Smart (TV’s “Fargo,” “24”), and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (“Star Trek: Into Darkness”), with Jeffrey Tambor (TV’s “Transparent,” “The Hangover” films) and two-time Oscar nominee John Lithgow (“Interstellar,” “Terms of Endearment,” “The World According to Garp”).
The official synopsis reads;
Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of- the- art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.
THE ACCOUNTANT is released in cinemas November 4 2016.
