Angelina Jolie has cast a little-known Bosnian actress as the lead in her directorial debut.
Snow star Zana Marjanovic, 27, will front the untitled wartime love story.

The actress tells the Associated Press she’s very excited about the prospect of working with a “great actress and humanist” like Jolie.

The Oscar winner hopes to start shooting the film later this year in Hungary and Bosnia.
