If Kristen signs on for the film, she would play a rookie con artist alongside Ben Affleck, who will play an experienced swindler. The fraud-loving pair's relationship grows complicated when they begin to develop romantic feelings for one another.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa ("Crazy, Stupid, Love.") will direct "Focus," while Denise DiNovi ("The Lucky One," "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants") is set to produce.
