Dafoe joins Reeves in hitman film

Willem Dafoe has signed up to play a hitman in new thriller John Wick.

The Spider-Man actor will star alongside Matrix actor Keanu Reeves in the movie, reported Deadline.

The story follows Willem's character as he is tasked with assassinating another former contract killer.

Things take a bad turn when he realises his target, the role Keanu plays, is actually one of his close friends.

Willem has also just been cast in the movie adaptation of John Green's book The Fault In Our Stars.

The 58-year-old will play a reclusive author in the film about two teenagers who strike up a romance while battling cancer.

Keanu, 49, can soon be seen in action film 47 Ronin.
