According to Reuters, an unknown Bosnian actress has been cast in the lead role in Angelina’s upcoming directorial debut.

Zana Marjanovic will star in the yet-untitled Bosnian love story, which will be set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War that lasted from 1992-1995.

“I can confirm my new exciting engagement in the first film directed by Angelina Jolie in which I will have the lead role,” Zana Marjanovic, 27, told reporters before she boarded a plane for the Budapest set of the film.

The film is produced by Jolie, based on a screenplay also written by the actress. In August, Jolie told reporters that while the film is set during the Bosnian War, it will not be the focus of the film.

“It’s a love story, not a political statement,” Jolie said.

No release date for the film has been set.
