Scratch that plan!
Just a couple of weeks ago it sounded confirmed that Kristen Stewart and Ben Affleck would be co-starring in the comedy Focus.
Kristen told the Huffington Post they would start shooting in April, and she'd play a newbie con artist who worked with the older, wiser Ben. There were supposed to be "passionate" love scenes between the two.
But Ben just dropped out. His rep confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that it was a scheduling issue, since he has upcoming directing projects and awards season promotion for Argo.
Wouldn't he already have known he was committed to those things before this point? Surely KStew couldn't have scared him off ... right? Rumor has it, he's eyeing a Senate run, so it's possible he's keeping his schedule open for that.
Anyway, if Kristen is still ready to go, it sounds like she might need a new co-star.
