Looks like we won’t be seeing any steamy love scenes between Ben Affleck and Kristen Stewart after all.

Weeks after the ex-Twilight star signed on to star in Warner Bros.’s Focus — the story of an experienced con artist who teaches a young female protegee the tricks of the trade — her co-star Ben Affleck has dropped out of the film.

Affleck’s rep confirms to EW that scheduling conflicts were the culprit. Between his next directing projects (including the thriller Tell No One and an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s Live By Night) and awards season promotion for Argo, the Oscar winner simply couldn’t find time to focus on the grifter comedy.

Focus is currently scheduled to begin filming in April.
