LOS ANGELES, March 7 (UPI) -- Hollywood's Warner Bros. studio reportedly has acquired the rights to South Korea's thriller "The Chaser" with plans to remake it.

Variety.com said writer William Monahan is in early talks with the studio to pen the script, while Leonardo DiCaprio may consider starring in the movie, which is loosely based on the exploits of a real-life serial killer.

Warner Bros., Monahan and DiCaprio all previously collaborated on the Oscar-winning film "The Departed," which was a remake of the Hong Kong crime drama "Infernal Affairs."
