The story centers on a veteran grifter (Ben) who takes a noob (Kristen) under his law-breaking tutelage.
“Crazy, Stupid, Love” helmers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa wrote the script and will also direct. (Fun fact: The studio had originally been eyeing two-time co-stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone for the project… meaning any shirtless Ben Affleck scenes will be especially bittersweet knowing what could have been.)
While Ryan and Emma have proven chemistry, it will be interesting to see how Kristen and Ben pair together on film. Either way, we’ll definitely be “Focus”-ing on the release date for this one.
Do you think “Focus” is the right post-“Twilight” step for Kristen? Are you excited to see her opposite Ben Affleck? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
