Ben Affleck Drops Out of 'Focus' with Kristen Stewart?

Ben Affleck speaks during the House Armed Services Committee hearing on the Evolving Security Situation in the Congo on Wednesday (December 19) at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C.

The 40-year-old actor has reportedly dropped out of his highly publicized film Focus, according to Variety.

Ben was set to star opposite Kristen Stewart as a veteran grifter who takes a young woman under his wing, but things get complicated when they become romantically involved. Unfortunately the timing hasn’t worked out and the film can’t fit into Ben‘s schedule anymore.

    Too bad, would have been good for Kristen’s career with Ben involved. I hope they find someone good to replace him.

    @sunshine: haha, exactly what I was thinking…her specialty are married men with children as we know already. Can’t believe any guy would take her back or maybe it was just a PR stunt? just saying…

    Ben Affleck dodged a trampire bullet. Gerard Butler can star since he and KStew are Razzie winners with no hope. Rob has a bright future. Kristen doesnt

    Good decision Ben. She was a little too fecking smug in announcing, ” I can confirm I am working with Ben Afflect”.

    ick.

    I had lost respect for him when I read he would work with that no talent idiot so this is very good news. I can respect him again.

    any real serious credibility ben’s been re/building over the past few years on his career & directing….. well, gone in a blink and back to actor jail, if he has anything to do w/that joke of an actress stewart.

    Hey there Says:

    Good call on his part. This movie would have been a disaster. Kristen’s career will start to spiral downward now that Twilight is over. Once she breaks up with Pattinson it’s a downward slide. She’s not that talented and extremely unlikable. Look for her to do a slew of budget indies. Most likely to end up in a television series.

    Ben can’t trust himself around young gorgeous women, RS is 40ish w/kids,too similiar. anyway BA would look like KS father very creepy.

    Recast with some of the intheclosetguys, JakeG,Franco,JeremyR

    As soon as KStew signs on …..the old scheduling conflict excuse …lol

    @yesgirl Says:

    So true! of course kristen`s fans will say that have nothing to do with his drop. He was already signed there isnt a reason to back out now and since the shooting is schedule to star in april i doubt they will be able to get a Alist actor. The script doesnt seems to be that good either Ryan, Brad didnt want to do that movie either. Not even Channing Tatum will want to do that now maybe J.Franco will since he is obssed with screw.

    Good for him. She wouldve probably spiked his drink and rape him. She is a hore.

    Sam Says:

    He definitely left because Kristen was cast. He was signed on before her and she just joined a couple weeks ago!

    Obviously, Jen Garner got scared of Kristen and Ben together! xD
    poor girl Kristen, she’s not gonna work with married men anymore :/

    Now that Ben got his awards nomination i doubt he will want to be associated with this girl

    TheDudeAbides Says:

    Ben is one sexy dude. But Jude Law would obviously be better casting; on more than one level. Kristen Stewart is still perfect for the role.

    ahahaha Jen must have asked him not to…smart choice lol

    this would have been bad for his marriage and his career. Gigli 2.0!

    Hii Says:

    Good for you Ben. Don’t let yourself be tempted by that tramp who has no respect for herself or anyone else. She’s slept with men before to advance her career and she’d do it again. Thats what tramps do, they have no shame. I’m sure she had plans to throw herself at him thinking she is hot or something. She’s as ugly on the outside as she is on the inside.

    @WhatATool: gorgeous really? His wife is beautiful,classy,and very talented. Kristen Stewart isn’t worth the $hit that comes out of Jen Garner’s butt.
