Kristen Stewart has lost her new leading man Ben Affleck - the actor has pulled out of their upcoming comedy Focus due to scheduling difficulties.
The Twilight actress recently signed up to play Affleck's onscreen lover, but the Argo star has been unable to fit the sexy project into his already-packed timetable.
Production on the film, about a con artist who falls in love with his young, female apprentice, was expected to begin in April, according to trade publication Variety.
