Ben Affleck is not long starring in Focus.
The actor was set to join forces with Kristen Stewart but because of a scheduling conflict he has had to leave the project.
Affleck has a very busy 2013 ahead of him with the release of To The Wonder, the new film by Terrence Malick, and Runner Runner.
He is also planning to return to directing with a big screen adaptation of The Stand.
The movie is based on the novel by Stephen King and he is also planning to write, star in and direct Live By Night - which is based on the novel by Dennis Lehane.
2012 has seen Affleck really cement himself as a directing force with the critical success of his last movie Argo.
He has picked up a Best Director and Best Film - Drama Golden Globe nominations and he is expected to be a major player on the awards circuit.
