The 22-year-old actress would star opposite Ben Affleck.

Focus centers on “a veteran con-man (Affleck) who becomes romantically involved with a newcomer (Stewart) and finds the relationship challenged by their illegal activities. When they meet again down the line, the complications have long-lasting effects.”

The flick will be directed by Crazy, Stupid, Love helmers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.

Last month, it was announced that Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone would not be starring together in the film.

    THIS IS THE PROBLEM W/HOLLYWOOD, WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAVE TO BE SUCH A YOUNG GIRL W/AN OLDER MAN??? HE IS OLD ENOUGH TO BE HER FATHER!!!!

  • peach

    its hollywood,people probably cheat a lot but just do not get caught.good luck to her if she does get it

  • niagirl

    Isn’t Ben suppose to direct the movie? He has been getting great reviews for Argo and he did give Blake Lively a chance in The Town when people said the same thing about her. The Blake was a cheater and too young to be his love interest. He has never done a real strong love scene. If she wants her career back someone has to take a chance on her.

    @April:

    Ben Affleck has been rumored to cheat on his wife numerous times, so I have no idea what you’re talking about. Also have you read his comments about his family???

  • burp

    Stewart’s cooch is itching to be scratched by an OLDER married man. Rob must be freaking out in his mind. He knows he’s no match against Affleck. Affleck is a handsome Man, Oscar winner, award nominated director ..what is Rob a pansy vampire. LOL!!

  • yo

    Watch out J. Garner!

  • looolz

    So Ben Affleck want to get boink on a very small car in broad daylight huh?!

  • andi

    we all know how she gets her roles….she will do anything ben wants…she’s not pretty enough for ben to sleep with…so don’t think this will go anywhere…

  • geez

    if this is not proof for people that the casting couch is the way for success in HW then people are complete DA’s…she’s willing to do her directors so she gets offered a lead role with Ben Affleck!!

  • Marie

    PFFF as if every meeting with a woman and man is ending up with having sex.
    Wake up people. They are just doing their job.
    Are you sleeping with every one of your colleages?

  • aquarius64

    @Marie: Unfortunately that’s Kristen’s image and reputation now thanks to the Mini-Coopering seen around the world. Outside her fanbase she’s perceived as a woman who will push up on any man, regardless of his or her relationship at the time. Despite the damage control deployed to keep Breaking Dawn 2′s box office from hemorrhaging, she will still be seen as a “trampire” in too many quarters, even when the Twilight Saga has left the theaters for good. I would not be surprised if there are some wives in Hollywood that would not trust Kristen around their husbands; especially if the hubby has crappy issues himself. The internet pictures show she will not respect marrigage, despite fans claiming she was a victim. (If she were a victim she should of complain to a head honcho at Universal or have gone to the cops.) She was the more powerful of the pair and people in authority would have taken her word. If she looks for a role she better make sure the guy doing the hiring is not asking for her because he thinks she’s an easy lay and has a boyfriend that won’t challenge him.

  • Sarah

    Talk about bullying!! Don’t be so mean it’s really not worth it… Bad energy and all that crap

  • T

    @aquarius64: i would say rupert is more at fault in the whole situation, he is the one that is married and should have the self control to say no and keep his distance and sever all ties with kristen thus avoiding the whole situation in the first place.

    if a 41 year old married man with children has no self restraint then he serious has some issues to work on

  • aquarius64

    @T: @T: Kristen is EQUALLY responsible, she made the choice to get involved with Rupert. She had a boyfriend she disrespected in front of the whole world. Unless you have hard evidence that shows Rupert threatened Kristen’s life if she didn’t hook up with him, you have nothing. Her age doesn’t excuse what she did either; she’s old enough to know right from wrong. The age “defense” implies she’s stupid and incapable of making sound judgments.

  • T

    @aquarius64: kristen made the mistake of going to meet up with him,i did not mention anything about her age as an excuse. the point was that as a married man,you would think if he was happy to cheat on his wife, have the common not do it in broad daylight were someone is bound to see you. i do not condone cheating but kristen is the one that is getting the most hate for what happened.

    people make stupid judgements at any age

  • T

    @T: *common sense

  • bah

    the two most wooden actors in Hollywood acting together? No thank you.

  • gabriela

    @aquarius64:

    Agree with all of your comments!Very well said!!

  • jen

    I think they would be good together in a film!

  • Lillian

    i think she would be perfect. she isvery talented and if anyone should be replaced is Ben. He is too old for her unless the script call for a relationship with a younger woman. You people. leave K-stew alone. She is a good actress and is only going to get better as she matures.

  • gabriela

    Yeah when she matures she will improve the art of cheating.

  • dani

    OOOO people get a life, really crazy all of you.

  • dani

    @uh oh: you are crazy girl, get a life

  • Flowers

    Well….Rupert Sanders is 45 or 46…just saying….

  • zalina

    kristen is one of my top 5 favourite actresses from hollywood right now..she is not like any other actresses from hollywood who are always putting up a front for the fans…she is true to herself and she doesn’t act like she knows everything…being akward sometimes makes her an interesting person to watch……by the way, i’m an asian..if i can appreciate her, why can’t the americans or whoever you are that are giving all those negative comments appreciate her

  • xxx

    The problem is Kristen has a reputation. She has one with the public now, but she had one behind the scenes previous to the Sanders affair. She’s had that rep since WTTR with Jake Scott. Remember that Jake and Rupert have been friends since Jake directed a Dior commercial with Liberty several years ago. Men talk about these things. Rupert got the heads up that Kristen was willing. Some actresses are, some aren’t. Rupert just had the misfortune of being caught. He’s an amateur cheater. Ben’s a pro. Lucky for Jen, Ben isn’t Kristen’s type.

  • xxx

    @April: This is true. Kristen’s fan complain that Rupert escaped without reprisal. He did not. Look at the Halloween pics. Notice the distance between him and his children. Notice how they avoid him and stick close by their mom. Now compare those pics with the Jamba Juice pics from last August. His kids know what happened with Kristen now. It will be a long time, if ever, before Rupert can repair that break in trust. In a very real sense, he’s lost them. Goes without saying he’s lost Liberty.

  • Its better now

    I think Ben will be save. She is just fu… with directors. As long as Ben isn´t directing this movie, Jen can sleep well. And we don´t tell anyone, that he is a director too.

  • Its better now

    @ XXX: She is passed on directors. Uh – if you aren´t blessed with talent you have to come up with other ideas.

  • Aranka Paul

    Neither she nor Ben strike me as a very romantic people. In fact, Rob was the more sensitive and romantic one in the trilogy. For a 22 year old, she has been given some mature roles. She is not a bad acctress, she is evolving as she is very young. I do think that they should pair Ben with a different age group acctress, a bit more experienced one. I also think that Kristen is too young to fully appreciate her own success. She is most likely so overwhelmed, she doesn’t know what to do – too much too soom syndrome.

    Anyhow, even if she and Ben star in this movie, dear God, it can’t turn up worse than that movie he made with Jennifer Lopez (was it Gigli) or something like that, that was so awful it nearly cost him his reputation and career. Some people just don’t learn the lesson.
