Angelina Jolie is taking her act behind the scenes for her latest project. Jolie will write, produce and direct a film set during the Bosnian War in the early '90s. She is working on the flick with GK Films, which made the announcement on its website.
The film, about a Bosnian woman and a Serbian military man who fall in love during the war, when the Bosniaks and Serbs were fighting each other, will serve as Jolie's feature directorial debut, according to The Hollywood Reporter. GK Films says that actors of "various ethnicities from the region of the former Yugoslavia" will be cast.
Jolie will not be in the film, and filming is expected to take place this fall, with no locations being announced due to security concerns. The Oscar winner, who serves as Goodwill Ambassador for the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and frequently makes trips to the area, visited Sarajevo last weekend to discuss the refugee situation with some of the country's leaders.
"The film is a love story, not a political statement," Jolie said in a statement released by the UNHCR during her visit to the region last week. "I would like to involve as many local people as possible and learn as much as I can."

In fact, she also insisted that these constant verbal scuffles are what attracted her to the 'Troy' star in the first place. "Brad is political and one of the reasons we came together is that he is very aware. Perhaps he is more outspoken than me, and I like that.

"A lot of time is spent arguing over things like justice. I am in favour of a harder line than he is," she said.
