HOLLYWOOD, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- "Twilight" actress Kristen Stewart is in talks to star opposite Ben Affleck in the con artist film "Focus," The Hollywood Reporter said.

"Focus" is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who together helmed "Crazy, Stupid, Love," the magazine reported. Denise DiNovi will produce.

Stewart next appears in "Breaking Dawn Part 2," which opens Nov. 16, and "On the Road" opening next month.
