Angelina Jolie’s Untitled Bosnia-Set Movie First Photo
Check out the first photo for Angelina Jolie’s Untitled Bosnia-Set Movie, which marks her directorial debut. She also wrote the script. The story is set during the Bosnian War and follows a love story between a Muslim woman and a Serbian man. The cast includes Zana Marjanović, Rade Šerbedžija and Goran Kostic.
Is the film going to be black and white or color?
It’s shot in color but it could transfer to black and white. We haven’t decided that. I can show you… we put a series of pictures together in black and white and it was beautiful. But the important thing I want to make sure that we make a film for people who just want to go to the movies to watch a love story. To not be put off by anything that seems too heavy So we want to walk that fine line to make it accessible to everybody because it’s important for as many people to see it.
Are you shooting it in English or, in all fairness, in one or more languages of the former Yugoslavia?
We actually shot a full version in their native language and we shot a full version in English. We shot two complete films. I was only able to do it because the actors were so fluent in English so they were willing to work hard and do the scenes in two languages.
And which language will be your choice for distribution?
We talked to the distributors about it and they might just offer every country an option. So if they want it in the native language they can have it. That’s the plan. But we certainly have done it for the people in the area.
So far there is no release date for the film.
