"Twilight" actress Kristen Stewart confirmed an earlier rumor that she would be costarring with Ben Affleck in a comedy called "Focus."

"I'm really excited about it. We start shooting in April," Stewart told the Huffington Post.

"Focus" will follow a grifter and a younger, attractive woman that the criminal takes under his wing. We're guessing that the grifter will be Affleck and the younger woman will be Stewart--unless there's another actor coming into the mix. Plot twist: things start to get messy when romance becomes a factor. Check out more details on IMDB.

The film was written by "Crazy, Stupid, Love" directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.

Stewart has had a busy year promoting "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" as well as her next project, the Jack Kerouac-based film "On the Road," which hits theaters nationwide on Dec. 21.

Are you excited about "Focus"? What do you think the chemistry will be like between our Boston boy and the vampire saga star? Let us know in the comments below.
