Now that her 'Breaking Dawn 2' promo tour has ended, Kristen Stewart will co-star with Ben Affleck in the comedy 'Focus,' set to begin shooting in April.

Stewart told HuffPost, "I can confirm that rumor.  It's a comedy.  I'm really excited about it."

In the Warner Bros. production, Stewart will portray an inexperienced con artist who hooks up with the more seasoned crook played by Affleck.  The plot will also include some passionate love scenes between the main characters.

Affleck, riding high after his blockbuster hit 'Argo,' was hoping Stewart would sign on to the film project because he thinks she is "terrific."

She'll be doing some premiere engagements for 'On the Road' in a few weeks to support the indie adaption of the famous Jack Kerouac novel that hits U.S. theaters on December 21.
