What About the Plot of the Accountant 2
The story of The Accountant moves around Christian Wolff, who is an efficient accountant. Investigation groups constantly employ him to look into monetary fraud and scams. His life takes a twist when he finds the records for a new client; the Treasury Department follows his work and the death toll starts increasing.
But there is a considerable possibility that The Accountant 2’s central plot will not feature Christian. O’Connor revealed his plans earlier for the sequel of “The Accountant” stating that in the second film if it is possible to do so, he has an idea of a “Catcher in the Rye” type of thing.
That the protagonist is surrounded by children, dealing with slavery, and kids who are sex slaves. If there is an idea to deal with that kind of issue and him rescuing children, that is something he would be interested in making. He even has plans to make the movie series into a trio.
But these are mere pieces of details being rumored and nothing is certain as of now. But we will update you as soon as any actual synopsis for the film is released.
