Actress eyes female lead in con-artist feature.
‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and ‘Twilight’ star Kristen Stewart has entered into talks to star opposite Ben Affleck in the con-artist pic ‘Focus,’ according to Variety.
The film tells the story of a “veteran grafter who takes a young, attractive woman under his wing, but things get complicated when they become romantically involved.”
Writer/director duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (‘Crazy, Stupid, Love.’) are behind the camera, directing from their own screenplay.
Stewart was mostly recently seen starring opposite Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley in the Jack Kerouac adaptation ‘On The Road.’
