Affleck is having a pretty good year. AS pretty much the only stand out on Batman v Superman, he’s secured the director’s chair on the upcoming Batman solo flick along with a producer’s credit on Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Now, the man who started out as the boy on Voyage of the Mimi is starring The Accountant, a movie that seems to be best described as a cross between A Beautiful Mind and The Boune Identity.
It’s just a trailer, but so far… definitely so good. At least so interesting.
Christian Wolff (Ben 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.
