Only days after Kristen Stewart confirmed that she would star opposite Ben Affleck in ‘Focus’, the actor has reportedly dropped out.
According to Variety, Affleck dropped out of the movie becauseÃÂ ÃÂ “while the actor very much wanted to do the film, the timing just couldn’t be worked out.”
Kristen, on the other hand, can’t wait to star in the movie. “It’s a comedy,” she told HuffPost. “I’m really excited about it. We start shooting in April.”
Affleck would have played Stewart’s love interest in the movie, where they would have had to film “passionate” kissing scenes, and post-sex scenes in bed. Stewart has been cast as an “inexperienced con artist” who learns the trade from a veteran, Affleck.
