    Washington (ANI): Warner Bros. has obtained the remake rights to the South Korean hit 'The Chaser' for 1 million dollars plus various incentives based on the remake's Box Office performance. William Monahan is in discussions to write the script and Leonardo DiCaprio is in negotiations to star in the film based loosely on the exploits of a real-life serial killer, originally played by Ha Jung-woo, reports Variety.

    The producers will be Dan Lin, Doug Davison, Roy Lee and Monahan, with DiCaprio likely to end up in some producing capacity as well. Kim Su-jin, head of production house Bidangil Pictures, will also get a co-production credit.

    Chaser, from director Na Hong-jin, grossed more than 20 million dollars in 20 days of release, and was pre-sold to France, Benelux, Greece and Hong Kong at Berlin's European Film Market last month.
