Angelina Jolie to shoot film on Bosnian war

Updated on : Friday, July 16, 2010

LOS ANGELES: Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie is planning to direct her first film in the Balkans. She will also play a leading role in the movie, a love story set in the Bosnian war.
Jolie will visit Serbia in August to discuss planning of the film and scout locations, local media reported.

In the film, a Muslim woman is raped by a Serb at the beginning of Bosnia's bloody 1992-1995 war. But they eventually fall in love and go together through horrors of the war in which more than 100,000 people were killed.

Jolie is a goodwill ambassador for the UN refugee agency UNHCR. She and her husband Brad Pitt visited the Balkans in April, taking a short vacation in Montenegro and visiting refugee camps in Bosnia.
