Ben Affleck’s ‘The Accountant’ Set for Jan. 29

Warner Bros. has set a Jan. 29 release date for Ben Affleck’s thriller “The Accountant,” which will be his first film since “Gone Girl.”

Fox/DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3” and Disney thriller “The Finest Hours,” starring Chris Pine and Affleck’s brother Casey, are also set for Jan. 29. Warner Bros. moved an untitled New Line horror film forward a week to Jan. 22.

Warner Bros. also set Miles Teller-Jonah Hill crime-comedy “Arms and the Dudes” for March 11. Todd Phillips is directing the story of two Miami stoners who wound up with a government contract to supply weapons for U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

The studio has also dated “Project XX,” a sequel to 2012’s high-school comedy “Project X,” for Aug. 19, 2016.
