Posted Saturday November 3, 2012 10:44 AM GMT

Already proving she has staying power after "Twilight" ends, Kristen Stewart is being considered to star opposite Ben Affleck in "Focus."

The Warner Bros. picture involves a veteran con-man (Affleck) who becomes romantically involved with a newcomer and finds the relationship challenged by their illegal activities. When they meet again down the line, the complications have long-lasting effects.

Directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa will helm the project, which is currently only in pre-production.

In other KStew news, on Thursday she announced with the President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that pal Jodie Foster would be receiving the Cecil B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes.

She said of the "Silence of the Lambs" star, "This is a special moment for me. She's been really important in my life for a long time."
