Ben Affleck has a unique skill set in THE ACCOUNTANT
The latest film from Director Gavin O’Connor (Pride and Glory, Warrior, Jane Got a Gun) has a very intriguing setup. Ben Affleck stars as Christian Wolff a mathmatic savant who secretly works as a CPA for criminal organizations. When the Treasury Department Crime Enforcement Division led by Ray King (J.K. Simmons) begins snooping around, Wolff decides to take on a legit client, a cutting edge robotics company. Trouble arises when an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) finds millions of dollars missing from the company records. As Christian investigates the matter further, the mounting danger increases.
The Accountant looks like a mix of Rain Man and The Professional and that means we’re in store for lots of psychological thrills and action. The supporting cast also features some real aces: Jon Bernthal (Sicario), Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow.
THE ACCOUNTANT will be released in theaters on October 14.
