Ben Affleck has dropped off the Warner Bros. film "Focus," due to his overcrowded schedule, a person with knowledge of the situation has told TheWrap.
Kristen Stewart stars in the film for directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who co-wrote the script.
The story revolves around a grifter who partners with a young woman who's new to the grifting life. The studio is now looking for a replacement.
Affleck has a number of other films in development, including "Live By Night,” "The Stand" and the "Whitey Bulger project."
A person familiar with the situation told TheWrap that Affleck's duties promoting “Argo” for its Oscar campaign were also filling up the actor’s schedule.
Affleck is repped by WME.
