Bosnian officials have reportedly revoked the filming permit for Angelina Jolie’s war film after protests reports Digital Spy.
Gavrilo Grahovac, Culture Minister of the Muslim-Croat federation, told a local radio station that he had prohibited the actress from filming in Sarajevo and Zenica and that the production will only receive authorisation if “they send us the scenario with a story which will be different from what we have been told by people who read it”.
The story apparently centres on a love affair between a Muslim woman and a Serbian man who had raped her. When that information was leaked, women’s war victims groups were up in outrage, calling it “misleading history… we will not allow anyone to falsify our pain.”.
Jolie, who penned and is currently directing the film in Hungary, planned to complete scenes in Bosnia over the next few months.
