Kristen Stewart Confirms Ben Affleck Comedy “Focus”

Star says production goes underway in April, expresses great anticipation

Some time ago, rumors were saying that, now that “The Twilight Saga” was over, Kristen Stewart was totally freaking out at the thought she might not land a new job. She’s just confirmed a new project.

Word that she and Ben Affleck would star together in a comedy about two con artists first started making the rounds a few weeks back.

Stewart herself is confirming it for The Huffington Post.

“I can confirm that rumor. It's a comedy. I'm really excited about it. We start shooting in April,” she says for the publication.

“Focus” sees Affleck play a seasoned con artist who is forced to team up with the young and inexperienced Stewart for a job, pretty much against his will.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, whose resume includes the critical hit “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” are handling the script.

Further details about the project are not known at the time but, seeing the kind of talent involved in it, it’s probably safe to say it will stand out from the rest of similar releases.
