Crazy, Stupid, Love. directorial duo John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (also the writers behind Bad Santa and I Love You Phillip Morris) are in talks to have Kristen Stewart join Ben Affleck in their next film, Focus. It's a romantic comedy about "a veteran grifter who partners with a girl who's new to the life," so Stewart may want to unlearn those On the Road tendencies to play a convincing newbie vagabond.
