Universal Pictures is ready to take a hard look at the birth of communism in China with the help of Tribeca partners Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal's.

Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal Begin Chasing the Dragon

Using the Roy Rowan memoir, Chasing the Dragon: A Veteran Journalist's Firsthand Account of the 1949 Chinese Revolution, Universal plans to weave the tome's story in an epic-sized drama with a love story.

Jon Marans and Yuri Sivo will write the screenplay with Rowan onboard as a consultant.

Teamed with photographer Jack Birns, Rowan covered China's civil war and observed close up the rise of Mao and his army. Along the way, Rowan fell for a Chinese interpreter who may have been a spy.

Rowan was one of the only Western journalists on hand to watch the events unfold.

Stay tuned for updates.
