June 27 (UPI) -- Warner Bros. is in talks with Ben Affleck to star in a sequel to 2016 action thriller The Accountant.
Released in October, The Accountant featured Affleck as a highly-functioning autistic math genius on the wrong side of law who worked as an accountant for criminal organizations.
As authorities begin to follow his activities and a new client puts him in danger, Affleck's character starts to use his extensive military training he received as a child from his father in order to protect himself, racking up a high body count in the process.
The film also starred Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow, and Cynthia Addai-Robinson. The Accountant was successful for Warner Bros. earning $155 million worldwide on a budget of $44 million.
Affleck continues to have a relationship with Warner Bros. after releasing Live By Night which he directed and by starring as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The 44-year-old will again star as The Dark Knight in Justice League, due in theaters Nov. 17.
