Taking stock: Accountant film trailer has little Hart but big Johnson

Accountants must be flavour of the month in Hollywood as Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Kevin Hart get in on the act

IT SEEMS like Hollywood has exhausted its once endless supply of superhero and Bruce Willis-action flicks and started to make films on a topic much more exciting – accountants.

With the accountancy world counting down the days until they can see Batman V Superman star Ben Affleck portray an accountant in a film aptly named – you guessed it, The Accountant, Warner Bros is whetting our appetite with an action/comedy focussing on a mild-mannered accountant.

Central Intelligence, starring globetrotting US comedian Kevin Hart and everyone’s favourite muscleman Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, centres on a CIA agent (Johnson) who enlists the help of former best friend and accountant (Hart) to help foil an end-of-the-world type scenario. You can see the latest trailer below:

 

We’re just hoping that Hart studied for all his accountancy qualifications to really get into the character before he started shooting.
