Following the public and somewhat salacious news that Angelina Jolie had her filming permits revoked by Bosnian officials it looks like cooler heads have prevailed, and the actress, making her directorial debut, will now be allowed to film in the region.

News broke last week that Jolie would not be allowed to shoot following a controversy that arose around her script which was rumored to feature a romance between a Muslim woman and Serbian man who raped her. Turns out there wasn't even a screenplay attached to the permit as required, and once it was resubmitted, everything was fine.

It turns out the rape in the script is actually untrue and Jolie asks that we hold judgment until the film is finished, saying in a statement, "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."

The currently untitled film stars Zana Marjanovic, Rade Šerbedžija and a host of unknowns from the region. We would wager the film will make the festival circuit next year, perhaps unspooling at Cannes?
