Ben Affleck has dropped out of Focus, Gossip Cop confirms.

A rep for the actor tells us that scheduling issues will prevent him from starring in the movie.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Affleck was set to co-star with Kristen Stewart in the film, which is about a veteran con artist, who teams up with a young woman who’s new to the grifter lifestyle.

Earlier this month, Stewart said she was “really excited” about the project, which was set to begin production in April.

It is not yet known who will replace Affleck.
