Los Angeles: Actor Ben Affleck has pulled out of upcoming comedy ‘Focus’ due to time crunch.

He had scheduling difficulties for the project, in which he was paired opposite ‘Twilight’ actress Kristen Stewart.

Stewart had recently signed up to play Affleck`s onscreen lover, but the ‘Argo’ star has been unable to fit the movie into his already-packed timetable.

Work on the film was expected to begin in April 2013.
