Before Will Smith and Margot Robbie team up as Deadshot and Harley Quinn in Warner Bros’ upcoming DC Comics film “Suicide Squad“, they’ll star as the most wanted couple in Glenn Ficarra’s and John Requa’s romantic comedy-drama film, “Focus”.
Will Smith stars as Nicky Spurgeon, a seasoned con man who becomes romantically involved with an attractive young woman named Jess (played by Margot Robbie). Jess quickly becomes a skilled con artist under Nicky’s guidance. But when he’s teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off.
Three years later, Jess who is no longer a novice in the scene shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes race car circuit. In the midst of Nicky’s latest, very dangerous scheme, the accomplished femme fatale throws his plans for a loop…and the consummate con man off his game.
Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, “Focus” is produced by Denise Di Novi and executive produced by Charlie Gogolak and Stan Wlodkowski. Ficarra and Requa directed the film based on an original screenplay written by themselves.
