Bruce Willis looks set to play a CIA agent in a new movie.

The Die Hard star is currently in talks for the role in American Assassin, reports Variety.

The upcoming film follows a man who signs up to the CIA after his girlfriend is killed in a terrorist attack, and Bruce is tipped to take on the part of the man who mentors him.

So far it isn't known who will play the younger operative in the movie, which will be directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff.

The film will be based on one of Vince Flynn's books about hero Mitch Rapp.

Bruce, 57, can next be seen in sci-fi movie Looper.
