Reports began circulating that Angelina Jolie had been banned from filming her untitled film in Bosnia after the filming permit was submitted without a screenplay — which is mandatory by law.

A government source is now reportedly confirming to the film permit has been approved for filming to begin on her directorial debut.

“The script has been approved and they are back on schedule to film in Bosnia next month,” the government source told

Added the source, “Everyone is relieved. Jolie feels like a huge weight has been lifted off the team’s shoulders. It’s great news.”

Rumors had insinuated that the film permit was actually denied due to the alleged story arc centering around a rape victim who falls for her attacker.

Angelina Jolie said in a statement in regards to the gossip: “There are many twists in the plot that address the sensitive nature of the relationship between the main characters, and that will be revealed once the film is released. My hope is that people will hold judgment until they have seen the film.”

Whatever the case, now that filming can begin in Bosnia and Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut with Oscar-winner Graham King is back on track, let’s do what she asks and wait-and-see.
