Angelina Jolie finds right actress for her Bosnian romance


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: I’m intrigued by the growing number of actors who are making the transition to the director’s chair.

Affleck brothers Ben and Casey have found varying levels of success. Philip Seymour Hoffman recently took the plunge with “Jack Goes Boating.” 
It’s not a new tradition (see Robert Redford, Ron Howard, etc.), but it’s one that has seen some strength in numbers recently.

Add Angelina Jolie’s name to the burgeoning list of talented performers taking their turn as storyteller. Jolie will make her directorial debut with a currently untitled Bosnian War love story, due out in 2011. IMDB says the film will explore how the conflict affected a couple’s romance. The site also credits Jolie as the writer … but not the star.

Instead, Jolie reportedly has zoomed in on young Bosnian actress Zana Marjanovic for the lead role in her film, according to the AP. Marjanovic called the script “fabulous” and said she was anxious to begin filming.

Marjanovic, 27, is on her way to Hungary, wher Jolie plans to begin filming by the end of the year. More details on this developing project as they cross our radar.
