Before beginning work on Warner Bros highly anticipated adaptation of DC’s Suicide Squad, Will Smith & Margot Robbie will star in Focus, a heist drama set to hit theatres on February 27th, 2015. Thanks to WB, we have a first look at Smith and Robbie’s character posters along with a official synopsis.
“Written and directed by the Crazy, Stupid, Love pair of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, Focus follows Nicky (Smith), a seasoned master of misdirection who becomes romantically involved with novice con artist Jess (Margot Robbie). As he’s teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off. Three years later, the former flame–now an accomplished femme fatale–shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes racecar circuit. In the midst of Nicky’s latest, very dangerous scheme, she throws his plans for a loop… and the consummate con man off his game.”
Rodrigo Santoro (300), BD Wong (Jurassic World) & Gerald McRaney (House of Cards) round out the cast. A new trailer is expected to hit tomorrow so keep an eye out for it.
