Just as we suspected!
Angelina Jolie has shut down claims made in the lawsuit, filed by James Braddock, that she stole the idea for her directorial debut, In The Land of Blood and Honey, from his 2007 book A Soul Shattering, which allegedly tells a similar story of a Bosnian woman stuck in rape camps during the mid-'90s!
Although Braddock alleges in the lawsuit that he met with producer Eden Sarkic on a number of occasions, trying to get it made into a film, before they went ahead without him, the actress asserts:
"There are many books and documentaries that I did pull from. It's a combination of many people's stories. But that particular book I've never seen."
Hmm! Inneresting, indeed!
But we're going to remain skeptical - at least until he can produce proof that he was in discussions with the producer!
What do U think?? Did Angie rip the author off??
