The permit to film in Bosnia which was revoked due to protests is returned to the director with the filming set to begin next month.
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.
