Accused of creating huge Hollywood film that “falsifies pain”

Angelina Joliehas been slammed with a huge hurdle that could cost her a shot at directing her first movie. The Hollywood actress who has relocated to Budapest to film a Bosnian love story was told that she could no longer film in Sarajevo or Zenica, located in Bosnia, and that her filming permit had been revoked.

The call to shut down Angie’s movie comes after several conflicting reports surfaced that ‘falsified’ the pain of the people being represented in the motion picture. According to the Associated Foreign Press the Association of Women Victims of War in Sarajevo have spoken out slamming Angelina for turning what were serious historical occurrences into a giant Hollywood film. "This is misleading history. We will not allow anyone to falsify our pain," said the women’s group.

After the outrage, Gavrilo Grahovac, the Culture Minister of the Muslim-Croat federation had no choice but to issue a statement to Angelina and her team specifying that unless they turned over the script for rewriting production would be stopped. "They no longer have the authorisation to shoot in Bosnia,” he said. “They will have it if they send us the scenario with a story which will be different from what we have been told by people who read it."

Shutting down the film was a way to "express our disapproval for the shooting of a movie which does not tell the truth and hurts a large number of victims," he continued.

No word from team Angelina yet.
