Kristen is eyeing her next big project, as she’s reportedly in talks to co-star with Ben in a new film about con artists! Read on for all the details.

With Breaking Dawn: Part 2 hitting theaters on Nov. 16 and On The Road following in December, it’s time for Kristen Stewart to find her next film project. Variety reports that she is circling the female lead in Focus, which will co-star Ben Affleck!

According to Variety, Focus is the story of a veteran grifter who partners with a who’s new to the life of conning. It was written by the creators of Crazy Stupid Love, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, and will be directed by them as well.

Warner Bros. originally were looking to cast Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in the flick, but those plans fell through, allowing for Ben and Kristen to be considered.

Are you excited that Kristen is lining up such a high-profile movie, HollywoodLifers?

I can’t wait to see her in something other than Twilight. She really is a good actress and I think this would be a perfect project for her. She needs to get back out and do what she loves. Make movies. I am glad it is Warner Bros. doing this since they don’t have the same debt problem Universal has. Matter of fact I think they are trying to buy Universal. Can’t wait to see her on the big screen again.

Kristen is Hollywood’s golden girl, she has made a ton of money for the Twilight franchise, SWATH, up coming OTR will also be a big hit and money maker..
Hollywood does not give a crap about the stars personal lives, they only care about the box office revenue, if anything Kristen is more alluring than ever. Rob is a fool if he lets Kristen slip through his fingers, he needs to fight to keep her and I think he realizes this now.

Kristen and Ben, hmm, maybe yeah.

Kristen Stewart, I love all movies I’ve seen. A Yes, I do well in Twi movies. Her acting is amazing what a girl performs in movies. Snow White was great, best of all they have ever seen. No matter what happened and why, that’s true, there’s no better Snow White than Kristen did. Now the OTR. Kristen is incredibly good in that movie. It has only 22, wow. Her private life is entirely up to her.

lol, if rob pat was the one who was cheating, watch everyone bash on him and run him out of the industry. but since it was a female who cheated, everyone forgave her because it was obviously a mistake when she already had a lover and was making out with a married men……double standard much?

Oh, goody, KS and BA in a film together. Two cheats who will have a lot of ‘fun’ on set and after takes. Watch out Jen, the skank is in town, Ben is married with kids, so he is the perfect target.

Jealous much Katie? You have slandered this girl on every post and it is getting old. Jennifer Garner has nothing to worry about and Ben Affleck has never cheated on her so where are you getting your information? Gossip mags as usual. How about using your brain cells for more than just coming up with immature slander and do some real research instead of believing what gossip rags print to make money off of you.

The more you try to put Kristen down, the more success that will come to her, looks like the scandal is not hurting her one bit. Bad mouth her and lie about her all you want, but she has someone that is very powerful on her side, the injustice that you create by constantly trashing her is coming back to her in blessings and rewards and she will continue to prosper. She is already being blessed and will continue to be blessed, with sponsors, movie offers, mag covers, designations and loyal fans. She is looking great, more beautiful than ever before with a great body and great legs.

So true Faithful and the thing the haters can’t stand is there is documentation from interviews by other actors, Producers, the Director, and the author saying Rob got the Edward role because Kristen fought for him to get it. Not only that Rob himself thanked Kristen for his career in his speech during the MTV Best Actor Award speech in 2010. You can Youtube it for proof. You can go to Shilo Fernandez interview for Red Ridinghood where he talks about getting the Edward part until Kristen put Rob in for it. Catherine Hardwick backs this up as well as Wyck Godfrey, Mark Morgan and Stephanie Meyer. Rob might not want to admit it now but he does know who gave him his start and it was Kristen.

Yes he has gotten some roles but he didn’t get most of these until after the scandal and fans felt sorry for him and directors knew the fans would support their movie if Rob was in it for the fans had already proved that they felt sorry for him so they would support him at the box office. I wonder when all this is over and the truth is out will you still support him as much as you did for his Cosmopolis movie? “Buy eight tickets Twilight Rob fans each so my opening night will be as big as Dark Night was.” Yeesh! That was sad and pathetic.

Kristen proved to everyone that she is willing to sleep with who she has to for her career instead of working with acting coaches…and she will break up families….good thing for Jen, KSCREW isn’t pretty enough or smart enough for Ben…so don’t think KSCREW will get this part & Jen has NOTHING to worry about…

Oh please Amy, find another excuse for your jealousy. She has gotten the big offers for movie roles since she was 10 and stared in Panic Room which was a big box office hit. She has had directors, produces and actors like Robert Deniro, Sean Penn, Chris Wetiz, Emile Hirsh, Vince Vaughn, Jodie Foster, Dylan McDermont, Chris Hemsworth, Garret Hedlum, Kristan Dunst, Sam Raimi, Josh Hutcherson, Tim Robinson, Frank Oz, Bill Condon, David Slade and many more have praised her work ethics and skill as an actress. You are just showing your jealousy by slandering her like you always do.
