Daniella Pineda, Others Join Cast of Action Sequel

The cast of the upcoming The Accountant 2 has grown, with Deadline reporting that Daniella Pineda and a handful of actors have joined the project.

Pineda (Cowboy Bebop) will be joined by Allison Robertson (Fear to be Brave), Robert Morgan (Babylon), and Grant Harvey (Emancipation), who all join a star-studded cast that includes Ben Affleck, Jon Bernthal, J.K. Simmons, and Cynthia Addai-Robinson.

Production on the sequel to the 2016 film is said to begin sometime this year, although it’s currently unclear when the film is expected to release.

“When her former boss is killed by unknown assassins, Treasury Agent Marybeth Medina (Addai-Robinson) is forced to contact Christian Wolff (Affleck) to solve the murder,” the logline reads. “With the help of his estranged but highly lethal brother Brax (Bernthal), 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.”
