Kristen Stewart Confirms Upcoming Movie, ‘Focus,’ with Ben Affleck
With promotions for Breaking Dawn — Part 2 now out of the way, it’s time for Kristen Stewart to think of her next steps (outside of On the Road promo as well). And, even though she recently teased a “strong possibility” of a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, there’s still ample time for her to squeeze in another project. Well, folks, it looks like that project will be another movie role that’s unlike the characters she usually portrays in a sexy comedy film, entitled Focus, starring Ben Affleck.
In an interview with Huffington Post, she says, “I can confirm that rumor. It’s a comedy. I’m really excited about it. We start shooting in April.”
Although not too much is known about the film at press time, IMDb’s description includes, “A veteran grifter [Ben Affleck] takes a young, attractive woman [Kristen Stewart] under his wing, but things get complicated when they become romantically involved.” So expect to see some hook-ups between the two stars.
When approached as to Kristen’s involvement in the project last month, Ben Affleck admitted, “I’m hesitant to get into casting stuff because I don’t know what’s finished or isn’t because people come in and out of things all the time. But she’s terrific and hopefully it will work out.”
As of right now, no other flicks are in the pipeline for the Twilight star, however, she says she “would love to find some micro-project before then, because April is kind of a ways away.”
