Kristen Stewart Joins Ben Affleck in ‘Focus’

Kristen Stewart joins Ben Affleck in FocusTwilight star Kristen Stewart is in talks to portray the female lead in Warner Bros.' Focus. We reported earlier this month that Ben Affleck is playing the male lead.

The story centers on a veteran con man (Ben Affleck) who teaches a young grifter (Kristen Stewart) the tricks of his shady trade. Complications arise when they become romantically involved, before going their separate ways. They meet once again years later, as their past romance comes back to haunt them.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy Stupid Love) are directing from their own original screenplay. The filmmakers had originally sought their Crazy Stupid Love co-stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone for the project, although deals were never made. Denise Di Novi is attached to produce.

No production schedule has been released at this time.

Focus was released February 27th, 2015.
