Ben Affleck Is Out of Conman Movie With Kristen Stewart: Who Should Replace Him?

It’s only been a few weeks since Kristen Stewart was officially attached to “Focus,” a steamy crime thriller about an experienced conman who takes on a young female protégé, but now co-star Ben Affleck has dropped out of the project.



Affleck’s people have confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that scheduling conflicts are to blame. He has too many projects on the way to devote enough time to “Focus,” including two upcoming directing projects -- a remake of the French thriller “Tell No One” and an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s book “Live By Night” – and of course the awards promotion for his hit film “Argo.”

Who do you think should replace him? Quiet and smouldering Ryan Gosling? Man of the moment Bradley Cooper? Or maybe someone a little older, like Brad Pitt? Perhaps Ben’s old pal "Jason Bourne" himself, Matt Damon? Or, for a laugh, how about Robert Pattinson?

    If they are still stuck with Stewart, a dead log will do nicely.

    How about they scrap Kristen and get two new actors who can actually act?

    Who needs any of them. I wont be seeing it regardless, but I certainly would NOT pay to see anything Affleck is in. He just isn't someone I would pay to watch pretend.

    Any of the above? None? How about replacing a very naughty Kristen Stewart
    instead of Ben Affleck? Kristen hardly deserves any more acting roles until she
    learns to treat fellow human beings like human beings.

    lol agree' but then would like to see just out of curiosity; if she and robert could switch gears in character roles and pull off a different flavor and texture of movie without having to 'suck and bite' just a thought.

    Robert Pattinson would be the logical, and only viable choice.

    Looks like every lady in hollywood is scared of her trying to steal their man away. Just pair her up with Rob for the sake of future relationships.

    I'm not a total Kristen Stewart hater, but I also can't think of anyone that I'd want to play opposite of her. Right now so much of her publicity has been negative that I feel like it would drag a lot of great actors down with it.
