Kristen Stewart has made headlines for pulling out of a major movie project.
The actress was due to appear in hesit film Focus, which sees a con man fall in love with a novice. Kristen was originally due to star opposite Ben Affleck in the movie, but he pulled out back in December, citing a scheduling conflict.
Ben says that he “reluctantly” left the movie so that he could work on an adaptation of Live By Night. Will Smith has now replaced him.
It’s unclear at what point Kristen pulled out of the movie, and she’s yet to discuss what happened in interviews – some reports say that she quit months ago – but more recent rumours state that she decided to depart following Will’s casting, as she felt that the age gap between them would be too large.
Why didn’t they just cast Robert Pattinson? We’d love to see these two reunited on screen! Yesterday it was revealed that Kristen will return to her role as Snow White in the Snow White & The Huntsman sequel, but that Rupert Sanders will not be on board.
