The con is on for K.Stew.

The "Twilight" star is set to work a scam or two as she's set to join Ben Affleck in "Focus," according to Variety.

Stewart will play a young grifter who teams up with Affleck's experienced con man in the crime drama set to be written and directed by "Crazy Stupid Love" duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. The original intent was to have Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone re-team with the "Crazy" filmmakers for this project, but Warner Bros. swooped in and grabbed Affleck once he was deciding on what to do next after "Argo."

It's good to see K.Stew scoring a new acting gig, especially after she dropped out of "Cali" soon upon the aftermath of all that hootenanny with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director. Enough with the "cheating scandal" nonsense — get this girl in more movies!

No word on a start date for "Focus," though we've got a double bill of K.Stew before the year is out, with "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" opening Nov. 16 (which is, like, mere days away) and "On the Road" finally making a stop in the U.S. on Dec. 21.
