‘The Accountant’ May Have Found a New Home at MRC and Sony (EXCLUSIVE)

Project was originally set up at Warner Bros.

After it had to leave Warner Bros. due to an expiring option, “The Accountant” may have found a new home with MRC and Sony in early talks to co-finance the film.

No deal has been locked in yet, but if one closes, Media Rights Capital will run point on production and Sony will distribute.

The movie was penned by Bill Dubuque and follows a government accountant who doubles as an assassin. Mark Williams of Zero Gravity Management and Lynette Howell of Electric City Entertainment will produce, with Howell’s Electric City Partner Jamie Patricof executive producing.

No talent is currently attached.

Warners had trouble locking down a filmmaker, considering a variety of helmers including the Coen brothers, but was forced to let the project go when the option expired.

Though the project ended up leaving WB, sources say the studio was still very high on the script, which is why the property was so sought-after after it left the lot.

MRC is currently producing and financing Seth MacFarlane’s next film, the Western comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” in which he also stars along with Charlize Theron.
