After the somewhat lackluster success of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck is more than likely seeking a surefire hit with his next starring role. Enter: The Accountant. Directed by Gavin O’Connor, who helmed the massively underrated Warrior, the film follows the exploits of an accountant doubling as an assassin. The “double life” trope has been explored countless times in films. But with direction from O’Connor and the star power of Affleck, The Accountant could prove to be an awards contender.
The Accountant hits theaters October 14, 2016.
