The last time Warner Bros. picked up an Asian flick for remake purposes, it became a little Best Picture winner named The Departed.
The studio is hoping for similar success with their new pickup, the South Korean thriller hit The Chaser. The studio is taking a similar approach to Departed, with early talk of Departed screenwriter William Monahan writing Chaser and Leonardo DiCaprio as a possible lead.
According to Variety, the film is loosly based on the exploits of a real life serial killer. In the original, Ha Jung-Woo played the killer.
