Angelina Jolie will be able to say “Lights, Camera, Action!” in Bosnia, after all.
The A-lister was re-issued a permit to direct her first movie in the country Monday, RadarOnline.com has learned, after authorities there last week revoked it following an uproar from a women’s group who mistakenly believed the film was about a Bosniak woman falling in love with her Serbian rapist.
Sarajevo’s minister of culture read the script to determine that was not the case, Jolie’s Bosnian producer Edin Sarkic told the AP Monday, adding he was given a written permit allowing Jolie and her crew to begin filming in the area next month.
Jolie discussed the storyline of her yet-to-be-titled film last week after the permit was withdrawn, and said there were misconceptions about its’ plot.
“There are many twists in the plot that address the sensitive nature of the relationship between the main characters, and that will be revealed once the film is released,” she said in a statement. “My hope is that people will hold judgment until they have seen the film.”
