The Bosnian government has given Angelina Jolie permission to film her directorial debut in its country after banning the production amid misleading reports about the movie.

Last week shooting in Bosnia was barred after a victims group for women claimed the movie gave a misleading account of the Bosnian War, reports PopEater.


There were also seemingly paperwork permit errors cited in revoking Angie's permission to film, but after a government minister gave the script another look the Bosnian government changed its mind.

"I can now start preparations for the shooting, which I had to stop last week," Edin Sarkic an executive involved in the movie said. "It's a big thing for Bosnia that such a mega, mega star is coming to Sarajevo."

Angie got the Bosnian government's say so after a minister double-checked the script and shooting locations after the permit was canceled on Oct. 15.
