Angelina Jolie Says She Didn't Steal 'In The Land of Blood & Honey' Plot From A Book
Angelina Jolie hopes to dismiss copyright infringement claims over her directorial debut, "In The Land of Blood and Honey. Yesterday, Jolie and company filed a page response denying the film is "substantially similar" to the book citing Ninth Circuit law. Instead, the actress claims film inspiration sprung from her travels to Bosnia as a U. Goodwill Ambassador. Jolie traveled to Bosnia along with Brad Pitt in , and for her work on the film, received honorary citizenship this past July. Plus, the studio has claimed in an email to the author at thesoulshattering. There's a lot at stake with the claim considering the film covering the Bosnian War of the '90s is Jolie's directing debut.
By Dominic Patten. The Oscar winning actress denied in the strongest legal terms that she took key elements of a book on the Bosnian War for her film In The Land of Blood and Honey. James J. Braddock sued Jolie and the others, on December 2, for copyright infringement. Filing his suit three weeks before the film came out in America on December 23, , the author accused Jolie and the companies of copying key elements of his book for In The Land of Blood and Honey.
Angelina Jolie's directorial debut gets the Bosnian war right, but preaches its message clumsily. After all, the film, which takes place during the Bosnian conflict in the early s, is standard Academy catnip: a historical, war-time drama helmed by Hollywood royalty. And it's getting plenty of media attention. Jolie has appeared on The Charlie Rose Show and Anderson to field questions about what it's like to go from hair and makeup to yelling "action! Given all this, it's reasonable to wonder whether Jolie is in the game for a Best Director nod at the Oscars, or at the very least for a lesser nomination Best Song , perhaps? After seeing the film and Jolie's many plugs for it, I don't think she's doing any serious Oscar-baiting.
