Will Smith Joins 'Focus', Kristen Stewart Drops Out

Will Smith is reportedly in final talks to join the upcoming con artist movie Focus, according to THR.

The 44-year-old After Earth actor will play the role of a seasoned male con artist who teams up with an inexperienced female one who needs his guidance.

The role was originally going to Ben Affleck, but his schedule caused him to drop out of the flick.

Kristen Stewart, who was once attached to star in the film with Ben, dropped out of the project a couple months ago, sources confirm to JustJared.com.
