Yeah, I didn't catch it when it first came out.  I later stumbled across it and was like, "Whoa, how did I not see this one yet."

The idea just didn't strike me as one that would turn out to be interesting. An accountant assassin?

The Accountant 2 - What We Know So Far

Quote

"The Accountant" director Gavin O'Connor spoke to the folks at CinemaBlend's "ReelBlend" podcast and confirmed the sequel. When discussing that he would not be doing a sequel to "The Way Back," he noted, "we are doing an 'Accountant' sequel. We literally just closed that deal. We're doing 'The Accountant' again."

 

One thing we know for sure about "The Accountant 2" is some of its cast members. O'Connor confirmed to ReelBlend that Affleck and Bernthal would be back to reprise their roles as the Wolff brothers. As far as other stars from the original film, including Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, and Cynthia Addai-Robinson, we don't currently know if they're expected to return.

i realize the accountant is not a great film, but it has become one of those "can't change the channel if it's on while i'm surfing for something to watch" flicks.  i do like it more every time i see it/part of it.

I loved the first movie, so I'm very happy the sequel is finally moving forward. I became aware of this comic a few years back, and it took at least a year of looking/watching before one finally popped up on eBay. I'm not sure why it's so seemingly rare:

I never realized this. Thanks for posting it.

Ben Affleck’s ‘The Accountant’ Is Getting Its Own Comic Book

Quote

Before he’s seen as Bruce Wayne though, Affleck will first appear in the Warner Bros. thriller The Accountant, as “a mild-mannered accountant who moonlights as a lethal assassin.” It’s not based on a comic book (the film’s from an original -script by Bill Dubuque) but it sort of sounds like one, right? Apparently the folks at Warners agreed, and as revealed at a panel this morning at Comic-Con, it’s going to become one before it heads to the big screen.

 

At today’s “Studio Production Chiefs Speak” panel, Warner senior vice president Drew Crevello responded to an audience question about the interplay between movies and comics, and the growing practice of studios turning original ideas into comics before they become movies, by revealing the plans to make The Accountant (which is directed by Warrior filmmaker Gavin O’Connor) into its own mini-series from Warner-owned Vertigo Comics:

 

“As a lifelong comic book fan, I just thought it would be a cool idea for a comic book. So DC, through their Vertigo label, is going to put it out as a limited-run comic book ... It just felt like [The Accountant] really lent itself to that treatment, and wanting it to have even some small life as a comic book was just exciting to us. We were trying to actually get it ready in time for Comic-Con, but I think we’ll actually probably have it ready in a few months.”
