Affleck In Talks For Con Man Romance FOCUS

Warner Brothers looks to have a hit on their hands with Ben Affleck’s Argo and may be looking to cash in on that. The studio is in discussion with the actor/director to star in writer/directors’s Glenn Ficarra and John Requa upcoming Focus.

Ficarra and Requa are the duo behind the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid Love and they were first interested in bring back that film’s stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone for this new project about a veteran grifter who becomes romantically involved with a newcomer to the con game he is training. It sounds as if the studio is looking to get the film in front of cameras as quickly as possible, so I would expect a casting announcement for the role fairly soon.
