Angelina Jolie will make a film this fall set during the Bosnian war, according to the Agence France-Presse. The star made the announcement following her recent trip to Sarajevo.

“Upon leaving Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday, Angelina Jolie stated that she will be in the region working on a film this fall,” said the UNHCR, the United Nations refugee agency, for whom Jolie works as a goodwill ambassador. “The film is a love story set during the Bosnian war of 1992-1995, focusing on a couple who meet on the eve of the war and the effect the war has on their relationship.” The AFP reported that according to national radio, the Salt actress will both direct and star in the film.

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Jolie will not appear in the film, but will serve as writer and director.
