Ben Affleck’s ‘Live By Night,’ ‘Accountant’ Release Dates Pushed Back

Two Ben Affleck projects, “The Accountant” and “Live By Night,” have had their release dates pushed back, Warner Bros. announced Friday.

“The Accountant,” which stars Affleck as an accountant who moonlights as an assassin, will now be released on Oct. 7, 2016, after originally being slated for Jan. 29, 2016.

“Live By Night,” Affleck’s first directorial effort since “Argo,” has been moved from an Oct. 7, 2016 release to an unknown date in 2017. The pic will be based on Dennis Lehane’s Prohibition-era crime novel.

The news comes on the heels of rumors that Affleck might star in, co-write and direct a standalone Batman film, which could further affect the schedules of his other projects.

Affleck can next be seen in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which bows March 25, 2016.
