Guess the rumors were TRUE!
We reported last month that Kristen Stewart was in talks to appear as Ben Affleck's love interest - and seXXXy-timez partner - in a soon-to-go-into-production comedy called Focus, and now, the Twilight starlet has confirmed the news HERSELF!
She recently revealed:
"I can confirm that rumor. It's a comedy. I'm really excited about it. We start shooting in April. [I] would love to find some micro-project before then, because April is kind of a ways away."
But that's not all we know now about this mystery project!
Apparently, the film focuses on the actress as "an inexperienced con artist who hooks up with the more seasoned Affleck," and will be written and directed by Crazy, Stupid, Love's Glenn Ficarra and John Requa!
Especially because we're not used to seeing our KStew take on comedy!
Well. INTENTIONAL comedy, anyway!
But she's got a solid team around her, so we're confident that despite some occasional lip-biting, this might actually be VERY good!
What do U think?? Will U check out Ben and Kristen in Focus??
