Angelina Jolie has written and will direct the Bosnian war drama she announced this week.

The Oscar-winning actress will make her directorial debut with the project, which tells the tale of a couple who meet each other just as the Bosnian war begins in 1992.

The project will be produced alongside Graham King and Tim Headington in association with GK Films.

It will be the second time Angelina works with the company following 'The Tourist', which she shot with Johnny Depp in Italy earlier this year ahead of a December release.

Discussing the movie while on a trip to Sarajevo earlier this week, Angelina said: "The film is a Love Story, not a political statement. I would like to involve as many people as possible and learn as much as I can."

GK Films is also currently working on Martin Scorsese's family movie 'Hugo Cabret, starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Chloe Moretz and Jude Law.
