    Warner Bros. has picked up remake rights to South Korea's surprise hit The Chaser from director Na Hong-jin, reports Variety.

    The deal, announced in Seoul on Thursday, is for $1 million plus various incentives based on the remake's box office performance. Kim Su-jin, head of production house Bidangil Pictures, will also receive a co-production credit.

    Warner is negotiating to assign a screenwriter and producer to the project.

    The midbudget thriller has earned more than $20 million in 20 days of release thanks to strong word of mouth from audiences and critics.

    The film is based loosely on the exploits of a real-life serial killer, played by Ha Jung-woo (Never Forever).

    Have you seen Memories of a Murder?

    That movie owns any American detective film. It's better than Old Boy.
