Kristen Stewart is rumored to be playing the lead in Ben Affleck’s next movie and there are said to be many steamy scenes between the leads. The story is about a grafter [played by Affleck] who takes a young woman under his wing and teaches her how to become like him [the part that is rumored to go to Stewart].
In Touch Weekly reports that the they have acquired a script of the project, called ‘Focus’, and it has a ton of steamy scenes between the two leads. One scene in particular is supposed to read, “Looking up at the man in front of her, the young woman whispers, 'Just kiss me.' He lowers his lips to hers, her back pressed against the hotel room door. After fumbling for the lock, the pair stumble through the hallway to the bedroom, never breaking their embrace. They fall onto the bed in a tangle of limbs.”
While Ben wouldn’t confirm or deny the casting rumors, he did recently say, “I’m hesitant to get into casting stuff because I don’t know what’s finished or isn’t because people come in and out of things all the time. But she [Kristen] is terrific, and hopefully it will work out.”
In Touch is taking the story a bit further and saying that it is likely, because of the nature of the love scenes, that Kristen is likely to once again cheat on Rob with another married director [this time with A-lister Affleck]. However, it does seem like they’re reaching for a story since it’s not even confirmed whether Kristen will star in ‘Focus’.
