Just over a month ago Ben Affleck signed up for the thriller The Accountant. Now he’s getting some company, as Variety reports that Anna Kendrick is in talks for the movie, while THR adds that J.K. Simmons may also come onboard.
The film is an action thriller about a mild-mannered accountant who also moonlights as a deadly assassin.
It’s near clear who either of the actors would play, and Kendrick is said to be a way off from signing on the dotted line for the movie at the moment.
Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) s set to direct from a script by Bill Dubuque. The cast should start firming up soon as the movie is due to go in front of the cameras in January.
