Actress Angelina Jolie has chosen to star in a movie that deals with both love and war.
Jolie has begun to work on a movie that will focus on a love story set during the 1992-95 Bosnian War, Reuters reports.
"The film is a love story, not a political statement," Jolie said in a statement issued by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), for whom she is a goodwill ambassador. "I would like to involve as many local people as possible and learn as much as I can," she said of the making of the film project.
According to the news agency, the movie follows the life of a couple and the effect the Bosnian War has on their relationship. Jolie, who paid a visit to Sarajevo over the weekend, confirmed they will begin filming this autumn.
