Angelina Jolie has been given the green light to proceed with her directorial debut – Bosnian officials have granted her permission to film in the country.
Plans for the as-yet-untitled drama were halted last week when Bosnian government representatives revoked a production permit over confusion about the movie’s plot.

But Jolie will be back in the director’s chair when filming begins in Sarajevo next month – producer Edin Sarkic received the written permit from a minister on Monday, according to the Associated Press.

Jolie came under fire after Bosnian media outlets reported the film features a love story between a Muslim victim and her Serbian rapist.

Producers at Scout Film in Sarajevo, who are working with Jolie on the project, submitted a copy of the screenplay to clarify the speculation.

The film actually tells the story of a Serbian man and Bosnian woman who fall in love during the middle of the Bosnian war.
