Angelina Jolie has announced via the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees that she’ll be starring in an upcoming love story that takes place during the 1992-95 Bosnian War. This will see her return to the Serbian capital of Sarajevo after visiting the city this past weekend in her UN Goodwill Ambassador role.

Jolie has said that the film will explore the effect of the war on the relationship of a couple who meet on the eve of battle. “The film is a love story, not a political statement,” she added. “I would like to involve as many local people as possible and learn as much as I can.”

I like the sound of this, Jolie has some range as an actor outside of the action packed films she’s become known best for. Two examples that come straight to mind are for her roles in The Changeling and A Mighty Heart, in both those films she gave incredibly brave and powerful performances. There’s very little details about this movie, much speculation has spread online that this will be Jolie’s directional debut. I guess we’ll have to wait and see!
