The hunter is now the hunted

Can you help me list stories where a paid assassin teams up with their target to fight off other assassins? I have some, would like more.

I remember this as being the plot from Grosse Point Blank -- John Cusack is hired to kill the father of his high school girlfriend. He has a change of heart and ends up defending his target from another assassin played by Dan Aykroyd.
Then there's Elektra where a similar thing occurs.
Are there some other films you can name where this happens? Is it a trope, or am I hitting on the only two instances?
