The Twilight Saga star is in talks to join the Warner Bros con artists film, an insider confirms to Deadline. Kristen Stewart would star in Focus with Ben Affleck. Stewart’s role would be an inexperienced con artist who hooks up with the more seasoned Affleck. Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who were behind the camera on Crazy, Stupid, Love, will direct Focus. The duo also wrote the screenplay. Denise DiNovi will produce. As this project develops, Stewart will be hitting a lot of screens in the next few weeks with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 out on November 16 and the adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s One The Road out on limited release on December 16. Kristen Stewart is repped by the Gersh Agency.
