Angelina Jolie really wants to make her new film in Bosnia despite the fact that Culture Minister Gavrilo Grahovac revoked the film company's license because of the movie's controversial plot.
In Angelina's directorial debut, a Muslim woman falls in love with her Serbian rapist, which has many critics blasting both the film and Angelina.
The company that is producing the project, GK Films, is persistent in filming in Bosnia and has reapplied for a permit, describing their issues as a "technical matter."
The company said:
"We are obliged to reapply for
the permit to shoot Angelina Jolie's directorial debut with the appropriate government offices in Sarajevo now that
the final script is available.
The stories about the film which have recently been circulated are incorrect. The dedication and commitment of the cast and crew from all over the former Yugoslavia demonstrates the integrity of this project."
We're still not too sure about the plot line, but if Angelina can make this work, then we want to check it out!
