Will Smith is showing off a slightly different side in Focus. He’s previously been known to turn down roles if his character wasn’t an out-and-out good guy, but that’s certainly now the case here.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Will Smith stars as Nicky, 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.’
It’s definitely something a bit different for Will. The film is due out in the UK on February 27th, 2015.
