The Accountant’ Director Gavin O’Connor may be director a new film for Warner Brothers. The film will be titled ‘Fast’ and follows a former special forces commando who’s recruited by the DEA.

According to an article from Variety, The script was penned by “Sicario” writer Taylor Sheridan, who was in talks to direct but when a deal fell through, the studio began looking for other options and eventually landed on O’Connor. After initially being tasked with helming Suicide Squad 2, Warner Bros seems to be mending their relationship with O’Connor. Prior to O’Connor’s announcement, Hollywood star Chris Pratt was in talks to be at the forefront of the film.

O’Connor is still in post-production on the sports drama “Torrance” starring Ben Affleck, but “Fast” is set to be his next feature project.

O’Connor has been fairly inactive but ‘The Accountant’ Director is set to return to the bigscreen in the near future.
