A new action-thriller is set to launch in late October starring Keanu Reeves, William Dafoe and Adiranne Palicki called ‘John Wick’. Lionsgate released the first trailer for the project over the weekend, which you can see below.

The film follows a former hit man, retired, who is pursued by an old friend who was contracted to kill him. The film was directed by Chad Stahelski based on a screenplay written play Derek Kolstad. Reeves last attempt at the action-genre was ’47 Ronin,’ a film that failed to meet expectations at the box-office and flopped before reaching week three.

The film is scheduled to release on October 24, 2014.
