Angelina Jolie has been given the green light to proceed with her directorial debut - Bosnian officials have granted her permission to film in the country. Plans for the as-yet-untitled drama were halted last week when Bosnian government representatives revoked a production permit over confusion about the movie's plot.
But Jolie will be back in the director's chair when filming begins in Sarajevo next month - producer Edin Sarkic received the written permit from a minister on Monday, October 18, according to the Associated Press.
Jolie came under fire after Bosnian media outlets reported the film features a love story between a Muslim victim and her Serbian rapist. Producers at Scout Film in Sarajevo, who are working with Jolie on the project, submitted a copy of the screenplay to clarify the speculation.
The film actually tells the story of a Serbian man and Bosnian woman who fall in love during the middle of the Bosnian war.
