Kristen Stewart joins Ben Affleck in `Focus`

Los Angeles: Kristen Stewart is turning a con artist in her next film with Ben Affleck.

The `Twilight` beauty, who was in the eye of a media storm after her cheating scandal with director Rupert Sanders became public, is in talks to join Affleck for Warner Bros `Focus`.

Stewart, 22, will play a young grafter who teams up with Affleck, an experienced vet, the Hollywood Reporter said.

Focus will be directed by `Crazy, Stupid, Love` helmers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa from a script that they penned. Denise DiNovi will produce the picture.

Affleck recently released his third directorial work `Argo` to critical and box office acclaim.

While Stewart is busy promoting `Breaking Dawn -Part 2`, the final film in vampire romance `The Twilight Saga’ that made her a household name.

The film hits theaters on November 16. Stewart also stars in `On the Road`, opening next month.
