Kristen Stewart may star opposite Ben Affleck in Focus

11.02.2012

What is Ben Affleck going to do after ARGO?

Possibly a movie with Kristen Stewart, if she decides to join.

The actress is circling the lead female role in FOCUS. CRAZY STUPID LOVE helmers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa will direct their own script which involves a veteran grifter who partners with a girl who's new to the life of con artistry.

Originally, Warner Brothers wanted Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone to team up again on this one. But when that plan didn't pan out, they decided to nab Affleck, who was trying to decide what to do after ARGO. With the studio originally wanting Gosling and Stone, I wonder if the script has any romantic moments. Should be plenty awkward to see Affleck and Stewart hook-up. I hear she's into older guys, though. Yeah, hahaha, terrible joke.

I don't loathe Stewart at all. Sometimes I think she gets stuck inside of herself when it comes to a role. I think there's plenty of time for her to sort of change things up, but that comes with the right role and a little effort to go outside the box.

No hate for Stewart...

I don't think she's been given the opportunity to put her best foot forward. I don't like Twilight. I don't get why people do... But I have enjoyed In The Land Of Women, Adventureland, The Runaways and Welcome to the Rileys... And I've heard good things about her performance in On The Road. There are people I know who think she's emotionless, but some of them are the same who said Hayden Christensen wasn't that bad in Star Wars. I think she's got potential, and given the chance, I'd like to

I don't hate Kristen Stewart. I think she would've been a lot better off if Twilight never happened and made it so people HAD to have an opinion about her. But while a romance between her and affleck would be kind of awkward to say the least, I'm not against her being cast here. One way or another, she needs a post-Twilight role, and this would sound like an interesting match-up.

No thanks. Not interested.

I can't stand Kristen Stewart as an actress. She hasn't done anything to change my opinion of that. Not even Affleck can take the attention away from her "purposely made awkward looks even though she isn't awkward at all because she wants to be different on purpose to stand out" moments.

p.s. I can't use a freaking hyphen without it showing up as a link. That should be fixed.

IMO, there are so many young actresses who are way more talented and deserving of a role like this than her.

Love how Nikki laughs at her own jokes. Hey, everyone is their own biggest fan, right?

This sounds look a promising project though. I too am no fan of Kristen Stewart but I've always liked Mr. Affleck and Crazy Stupid Love is one of the best romcom/drama's since (500) Days of Summer.
