DiCaprio and 'Departed' Writer in Talks for 'Chaser' Remake


William Monahan – the man responsible for adapting the material from Hong Kong classic Infernal Affairs into an Oscar winning screenplay for The Departed – is being courted by Warner Brothers to take on another remake, this time for the hit South Korean serial-killer thriller, The Chaser. Leonardo DiCaprio is also in talks to possibly star and/or produce. Such a collaboration would be the third for the pair, as Monahan and DiCaprio’s work will be seen in Ridley Scott’s Body of Lies, screening later this year. (Variety)

Maybe it’s a longshot for Warner Brothers to wrangle in Martin Scorsese for The Chaser, but you know they’ve got to be angling for that hat-trick with everything they have.
