Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie took her first steps behind the camera, as she decided to write and direct her own movie In the Land of Blood and Honey. However, Angelina has now admitted that she never actually had any plans to write or direct any movies.
Jolie was chatting to Total Film magazine, when she explained, “I didn't set out to ever become a director or write a script. I was never intending to make a film. I often give myself homework on different things; it's good exercise to get your mind working.”
She added, “I've been travelling for over 10 years to these conflict and post-conflict zones, and thinking about what happens to people when they live inside these situations, and how their humanity is just stripped apart.”
Angelina continued, “I spent so much of the time bringing people back - like they're in the refugee camp and returning them to the place where they faced war. So I wanted to have a meditation on what this is and how people who are neighbours can turn against each other.”
In the Land of Blood and Honey is expected to be released in the UK later this year.
