Angeline Jolie to Film Love Story Set in Bosnian War

Angelina Jolie revealed after a surprise visit to Sarajevo on Saturday she would soon start work on a love story set during the 1992-95 Bosnian War.
In a statement issued by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Jolie said that shooting for the movie would begin in autumn on the tale of a couple who meet on the eve of the war and the effect it has on their relationship.
"The film is a love story, not a political statement," Jolie said in the statement.
She said the movie's cast would be comprised of actors from the various ethnicities of the former Yugoslavia.
"I would like to involve as many local people as possible and learn as much as I can," she said.
Jolie arrived Friday for a visit to Sarajevo. On Saturday, the actress, who is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNHCR, met members of Bosnia's inter-ethnic presidency to discuss ways to help thousands of returning war refugees.
Jolie visited returnees in eastern Bosnia in April with her partner Brad Pitt and promised to pay a visit again.
