‘Focus’ Might Star Kristen Stewart Opposite Ben Affleck
The latest effort from Crazy Stupid Love directors Glenn Ficara and John Requa, might see Kristen Stewart starring opposite Ben Affleck. It was earlier reported that Affleck has already been finalized for the role of the seasoned con artist, in ‘Focus’. It is now being reported, that Stewart is vying for the role of his accomplice. It is slated to be a business relationship that ends up going down the romantic route.
Apparently Crazy… stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were originally being looked at to star, but that didn’t come to fruition for unknown reasons. If Stewart sings on the dotted line for the part, it would be her first major role since Twilight. It would possibly be an opportunity Stewart wouldn’t like to miss, as Affleck is riding high after the critical and commercial success of Argo, and is one of the most in-demand male stars at the moment. Turns out, the starring role after Ryan Gosling was also offered to Brad Pitt but he turned it down. The role then eventually went to Affleck, which is probably a good thing, as his stars are shining bright at the moment.
