Ben Affleck Gets Out of ‘Focus’ With Kristen Stewart, Blames Hectic Schedule
Out of focus, indeed.
Affleck “very much wanted to do the film, the timing just couldn’t be worked out,” per Variety.
Per Deadline, the Argo actor, 40, was originally cast to play Stewart’s love interest in the sexy comedy, about a veteran con artist who enlists the help of an inexperienced ingenue (Stewart). Other reports stated that the pair would film “passionate” love scenes.
Before signing off, Affleck expressed his excitement over the project, even calling 22-year-old Stewart “terrific.”
As for Stewart? She’s currently promoting On the Road (also starring Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst), and is rumored to be starring in the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman.
