Unknown Bosnian actress gets Jolie film role
Friday 24 September 2010
A largely unknown Bosnian actress has won the lead role in Angelina Jolie's directorial debut about a Serbian man and Bosnian woman who meet on the eve of the 1992-95 Bosnian war.
The Sarajevo-born Zana Marjanovic, 27, who played in two Bosnian feature films, said the movie will be set in the war but will not be about politics. "It is complex but primarily a love story," said Marjanovic, who escaped the Bosnian war and lives in New York. The romantic drama, announced in August when Jolie visited Sarajevo as a goodwill ambassador of the UN refugee agency UNHCR, will be based on her own screenplay.
