The ‘Twilight' beauty, whose cheating scandal  with director Rupert Sanders made international headlines, is in talks to join Affleck for Warner Bros upcoming film 'Focus'.

Stewart, 22, will play a young grifter who teams up with Affleck, an experienced vet, the Hollywood Reporter said.

Focus will be directed by 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' helmers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.

Denise DiNovi will produce the picture.

Affleck recently released his third directorial work 'Argo' to critical and box office acclaim.
