Angelina Jolie reportedly sued over allegedly stealing movie story

HollywoodNews.com: Angelina Jolie may be excited to debut her first directed film, but she may have to deal with a little legal matter first.

Jolie is reportedly being sued for allegedly stealing the story of her film ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey,’ states RadarOnline.com. Croatian journalist and author James J. Braddock is supposedly claiming that her film is based on an article he wrote and published in 2007.

He is also reportedly suing GK Films as they financed and will release the film.

He is asking to be awarded damages.

Do you think he’ll win anything?

    Yeah, and before this, he was claiming that she copied his book. Now it’s an article he wrote. He said he wrote the book in 1992-93, but because of personal reasons, did not publish it until 2007. Now he’s saying he published an article that she plagiarized.

    And he hasn’t even seen the movie yet.

    He started by basing his entire plagiarism case off the fact that her film was about a romance set during the Bosnian War. He read the basic principle of the movie that the public got: a romance between to opposing sides, which he thought was too close to his own book.

    During filming, when the film company wouldn’t give him more details just because he demanded them, he took his case to well-known Jolie hate sites, who instantly jumped on the bandwagon. (I’d like to point out, these same sites believe that Jolie works for the CIA, smuggles drugs, and uses voodoo).

    Once the guy had loyal supporters at his back, he kept campaigning against Jolie, and now he has filed a suit against her.

    Even the hate sites don’t expect him to win anything. They have hedged their bets, saying, “Well, if he doesn’t win the case, it’s only because Jolie and co. will have threatened him into silence, or had him assassinated.” Assassinated?

    I wonder if he will present their views in his court case?

    The whole thing is a joke, but it’s only helping the movie. Before this the movie had little to no advertising, but now it’s getting free publicity.

    The woman claims to have written the movie in two days, while sick in bed with the flu. I sure hope this goes to court. I’d love to see her cross-examined.
