Reported by Outsiders - 2013.09.13
Deadline is reporting that Willem Dafoe is set to play a hitman in the Thunder Road film, John Wick with co-star Keanu Reeves.
The thriller sees 'Dafoe’s Marcus character hired to take out the Reeves-portrayed title character, who is a former contract killer himself. Did we forget to mention that Marcus is good friends with Wick? He was the one who encouraged Wick to leave the life after his wife dies. Only later do things turn sour when Marcus gets the job to kill his friend. In the film, Reeves stars as the retired hitman who goes after the guy who stole his car and in the process killed Wick’s beloved dog — a present from his late wife. Turns out the thief’s dad is a crime boss in New York, who puts a contract out on Wick.'
