Ben Affleck to star in con man flick Focus

Ben Affleck to star in con man flick Focus

Now that he’s conquered directing, Ben Affleck’s ostensibly out to convince Hollywood he’s a worthwhile male lead again.

The “Argo” director and star is in talks to star in heist project “Focus”, from “Crazy, Stupid, Love” writer-directors Glen Ficcara and John Requa.

The Hollywood Reporter, noting that Affleck is a favourite of Warner Bros right now, says of the film :

Focus is a two-hander about a con man who becomes romantically involved with a novice. He is then thrown off his game when the former flame shows up just as he’s staging an elaborate con in Buenos Aires.

Before “Focus”, Affleck will be seen in another two-hander, “Runner, Runner” opposite Justin Timberlake.
