Affleck Out Of “Focus,” Jackman In “X-Men”

A scheduling conflict has forced Ben Affleck to drop out of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s “Focus” at Warner Bros. Pictures. Shooting was to begin in the Spring.

The story deals with a romance between a professional conman and someone just learning the criminal art and how their past relationship comes back into play when they meet up again years later.

Meanwhile, Bryan Singer recently tweeted “I would officially like to welcome @RealHughJackman to the cast of #Xmen Days of Future Past. Very excited!”

This confirms earlier reports that Hugh Jackman will star in the soon to shoot ‘First Class’ sequel – “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
