"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.
