Ben is itching to work with Kristen on his new film ‘Focus.’ Do YOU think Kristen should take the part?
With Breaking Dawn Part 2 in theaters and On The Road following in December, it’s time for Kristen Stewart to line up her next film project. Variety reports that she is being eyed for the female lead in Focus, which will co-star Ben Affleck! Luckily, Ben is thrilled with the idea of bringing Kristen on board!
“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,” Ben told E! News at the GQ Men of the Year party at Chateau Marmont. ”But [Kristen's] terrific and hopefully it will work out.”
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.
Kristen, 22, is reportedly in talks to costar as a young woman Ben’s character, a veteran grifter, meets in his travels.
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?
