A Croatian journalist is suing Angelina Jolie for stealing his idea.

Angelina wrote and directed In the Land of Blood and Honey, the ficitionalized story of a Serbian soldier falling in love with a Bosnian Muslim woman during the Bosnian War

Joseph J. Braddock, or Josip J. Knezevic, claims that he wrote an article in 2007, and that it is the basis of Angelina's film.

Braddock claims the following in the court documents:

The Subject Work’s main female character is subject to continuous abuse and rape by soldiers and officers in the camp. In addition to being raped continuously by soldiers and officers, she is forced to become a servant at the camp headquarters, a duty assumed by very few of the captives. The Motion Picture’s main female character is also subject to continuous rape by soldiers and officers in the camp and subsequently becomes a servant at camp headquarters.

Braddock is coming after Angelina, GK Films and others for damages.

In The Land of Blood and Honey releases December 23rd.

    So they will settle, give the guy some crumbs off the table and make him go away. Or they won't get the release before Christmas with a "C".



  2. 2

    Well there both based off the same war and true events its like Frosty suing Rudolph for stealing his ideas!! lol to funny



  3. 3

    It's common for newspaper articles to inspire fiction. Most fiction comes from some seed of reality. This guy has no grounds. If he had written a movie, that would be a different story.

    Why are skankolina's lips lumpy? I don't understand. She is all natural so why are they lumpy???



  5. 5

  6. 6

    She stole Jen's husband….why wouldn't she steal a storyline…….lol



  7. 7

    steals husbands and ideas….no surprise there!



  8. 8

    quit painting the serbians as the problem !!



  9. 9

    You stole Jen's Husband and Laura Dern's fiancé (Billy Bob Thorton), so stealing a movie idea would be a no brainer! Most likely the person who you stole the idea from was a woman!

    If she was inspired by the story she read she needs to give the guy credit. I would have been put on academic probation if I had done anything like this in college.

    Re: JennyJJJ – At least her lips are lumpy, you got nothing but a man features and shape, lol!



  12. 12

    Remember when Bette Midler STOLE Martha Raye's story

    Re: Cuddles30 – Poor you thinking someone is stolen. When the spouse dumps the ex aka Jennifer, it means that spouse aka Brad was looking foran upgraded partner, no one stole him, lol.



  14. 14

    she steals husbands, she steals stories… what's next, Angelina Homewrecker?



  16. 16

    Wow how gullible are the comments here? One person says she stole a story & it must be true! & last time I checked you cannot steal another persons husband away. Get a grip!



  17. 17

    If it is inspired by his article then he deserves the credit that is needed. What is it with Hollywood and taking everyones original work and calling it their own…shit.

  18. @v@ says – reply to this

    Yes, o.k., but did he write it in Croatian? It would be uncommonly rare for her to translate a Croatian article. The tales sound similar, but all war stories concerning women commonly sound this type of awful.

    Re: JennyJJJ – I truly think you should seek some mental help. There's not liking someone and then there's just being completely obsessed with someone. You seem to be the latter. You comment on multiple stories about Angelina. Why waste your time commenting on stories about someone you don't even like? You bully not only her but her children, calling them retarded. I think someone has to be mentally ill to say some of the stuff you say.



  20. 20

    This guy is just trying to get money. I'm sure you can find a dozen Albanian, Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian, etc… movies very similar to this anyway.



  21. 21

    She's a homewrecker, what do you expect?

    If it were legal that people were property Aj still would not be guilty of stealing anyones boyfriends or husbands roflmao. How silly can people be. She didnt steal anyones story either. I know that reading a book of history is probably not on anyones list of thisng to do especailly when they think you can sdteal "people". BUT the fact of prison camps and rape go hand in hand. From HItlers camps and before that women and men have been beaten and raped in these camps. I also believe that there were people who fell in love in those camps or professed love for the enemy in order to survive. I understand these things are way over the haters heads in here because they just want to talk about Billy BOb who was NEVER married to LD and Brad who already was discussing divorce with the liar JA. People who believe she "stole" another persons really need an education and to be able to read between the lines. The best acting JA ever did was was the tears she shed over a divorce that she wanted. The best thing JA did was marry Brad Pitt because if she hadn't she would have nothing at all. At leastand can act and has kids with the man she loves. Jen has had nothing but one night stands and one affair after another. Whats the difference between her and AJ? Plenty but you haters are so teenaged that you cannot see it.

    I think it best that she focus on this controversy and others, rather than on irrelevant dribble about her past, trying to convince the world that she is a stay at home mother and all the other worthless nonsense that comes out of her. It is like beings in a mind field and choosing to reflect on trivial experiences that do not matter.
