Last year's The Accountant may have left critics divided but there will still be many folk happy to hear that a sequel is in the works with Ben Affleck, director Gavin O'Connor and producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Mark Williams all in talks to return.

It's also looking likely that Jon Bernthal (Brax) will be back while there is no word yet on any other supporting cast members returning like Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons or Cynthia Addai-Robinson.

The film saw Affleck starring as a math savant with high-functioning autism who works as an accountant to criminal organisations to help them uncook the books.

The unusual crime thriller, made by Warner Bros, is not the typical flick you would expect this studio to make a sequel of, but we'd imagine the fact that it more than tripled its budget in the box office is probably something to do with it.
