Ok, now we should also write that Kristen Stewart is still in talks to join the whole thing, but I definitely think that this could be one hell of a combination, so here we go. Stewart will (probably) join previously announced Ben Affleck in the upcoming con artist movie simply titled Focus, which comes from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.
Ficarra & Requa, duo which stands behind Crazy Stupid Love are directing Focus from their own script, and at this moment the only thing we know is that the story will follow a veteran grifter who partners with a girl who’s new to the life.
This sounds interesting actually, I can already imagine that weird romance between Afleck as a proffesional conman and Stewart as the newcomer in the world of criminal art.
Let me also mention that Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were previously planned for the roles, but when those plans fell through, Warner Bros. moved quickly with The Twilight Saga star and Affleck (who’s been quite busy with his Argo thing).
Denise DiNovi will produce Focus, and for more details on this project – stay tuned!
