The Accountant trailer: meet Ben Affleck the assassin

Ben Affleck has put his Batsuit away for his next movie project, a thriller by the name of The Accountant.

This one comes from Warrior director Gavin O’Connor, and sees Affleck co-star with Anna Kendrick, J K Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor and John Lithgow.

It follows the story of a seemingly mild-mannered man – an accountant, as luck would have it – who has a little bit of a sideline in, er, assassinating people.

And here’s the synopsis.

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.

The Accountant arrives in cinemas in October.
