Two days after Croatian journalist James J. Braddock filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Angelina Jolie over her directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey, the actress has responded. According to the L.A. Times, Jolie said in a recent interview, “It’s par for the course. It happens on almost every film.” Though Braddock claims he met several times with Jolie’s producer Eden Sarkic (also named in the suit), Jolie (who also co-wrote Honey‘s script) insisted she’s never read A Soul Shattering, Braddock’s 2007 account of the Bosnian War. “There are many books and documentaries that I did pull from. It’s a combination of many people’s stories,” she said. “But that particular book I’ve never seen.” Braddock is seeking an emergency injunction against the film’s Dec. 23 release.
