Zachary Quinto is set to star in assassin movie Agent 47.

The former Heroes star has been cast alongside Rupert Friend in the action film, reported Deadline.

The project is a reboot of the 2007 Timothy Olyphant movie Hitman and was originally set to star Fast And Furious actor Paul Walker.

Rupert took over the lead part earlier this year following Walker's death in a car crash in November.

It hasn't been announced who Star Trek actor Zachary will play.

Aleksander Bach will direct Agent 47, with shooting due to get under way in March.
