He’s a man of many talents, and it seems Ben Affleck simply doesn’t have the time to star in the upcoming flick “Focus.”

According to the “Good Will Hunting” actor’s spokesperson, it’s simply a case of scheduling conflict, though no further explanation was offered.

Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart is still attached to the project and producers are scurrying to find a replacement for Affleck’s male lead.

The “Twilight Saga: New Moon” babe previously told press, “It’s a comedy. I’m really excited about it.”

“Focus” is said to be about a veteran con artist who teams up with a young woman who’s new to the grafter lifestyle.
