Jolie Sued for Bosnian Film

A Croatian journalist is suing Angelina Jolie, claiming her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, violates copyright. James Braddock, also known as Josip Knezevic, is suing Jolie and the producers of her film, saying the film too closely resembles his own book, The Soul Shattering. Braddock also claims he met with a producer several times to discuss turning his book into a movie, and he kept in touch with the producer, who reportedly helped Jolie obtain the permit to film in Sarajevo. This is not the first trouble for In the Land of Blood and Honey, which was met with protests by Bosnian victims of sexual violence during the Balkan conflict.
