According to Deadline, Ben Affleck, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Jon Bernthal, and J.K. Simmons are set to reprise their roles in “The Accountant 2,” the sequel to the 2016 action thriller. The film is a collaboration between Amazon MGM Studios and Artists Equity, the production company founded by Affleck and Matt Damon.

Directed by Gavin O’Connor, who helmed the first installment, the sequel’s script is penned by Bill Dubuque, the original film’s screenwriter.

The first “Accountant” film achieved a global box office gross of $155 million, becoming the most-rented digital film the following year. Affleck portrayed a skilled CPA leading a double life as a forensic accountant for criminal organizations. The sequel picks up with Cynthia Addai-Robinson’s character, Marybeth Medina, reaching out to Christian Wolff (Affleck) to solve a murder following her former boss’s death.

Official Synopsis reads:

The sequel’s plot is thrust into motion when Medina’s former boss is killed by unknown assassins, and she’s forced to contact Christian to solve the murder. With the help of his estranged but highly lethal brother Brax, Chris applies his brilliant mind and less-than-legal methods to piece together the unsolved puzzle. As they get closer to the truth, the trio draw the attention of some of the most ruthless killers alive — all intent on putting a stop to their search.

Jon Bernthal returns as Christian’s brother, Brax, while J.K. Simmons reprises his role as Ray King, the Director of the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.
