Kristen Stewart To Star In Romantic Comedy Alongside Ben Affleck

Kristen Stewart has confirmed that she’s starring in a new romantic comedy with Ben Affleck in the new year.

So now that The Twilight Saga is done and dusted, it doesn’t mean that we have to say goodbye to seeing K-Stew on the big screen. Phew!

The 22-year-old actress will take on a sexy new role in the film ‘Focus’.

She told the Huffington Post: “I can confirm that rumour. It’s a comedy. I’m really excited about it. We start shooting in April. I would love to find some micro-project before then, because April is kind of a ways away.”

The film is based around the life of an inexperienced con artist who hooks up with Ben Affleck’s character. Ooh! 

Kristen had previously admitted that she was “desperate” for a job following Breaking Dawn Part Two and “itching to get back to work”.

Robert Pattinson, meanwhile, has five back-to-back projects lined up for next year.

We can’t wait to see Kristen take on a romcom. Now, any room for Kristen in those five flicks, Rob? RM
