Angelina Jolie has found herself in a bit of trouble over her upcoming directorial debut ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’. Jolie, who is currently on a press tour promoting the movie, is being sued for copyright violation by Croatian journalist James Braddock.
Braddock is claiming that his book ‘The Subject Work’ is really the basis of the movie and that he even met with the film’s producer Edin Sarkic back in 2008 to discuss a movie adaptation. X17 reports that Braddock states he and Sarkic spoke about the details of the book including “plot and character development and the story’s cultural significance and historical accuracy”. Now it’s up to a judge to decide if “the claimed obvious similarities meet the high threshold needed to prove copyright infringement”.
Hmmmm, what do you think? It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
