LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24 (UPI) -- U.S. film star and human-rights activist Angelina Jolie says she plans to start shooting this fall a romantic drama set during the 1992-95 Bosnian war.

The Hollywood Reporter quoted the star of "Girl Interrupted," "A Mighty Heart" and "Salt" as saying actors from the various ethnicities of the former Yugoslavia will be featured in the cast. No actors were mentioned as a possible romantic interest for Jolie's character.

"The film is a love story, not a political statement," Jolie said in a statement issued by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees for whom she is a goodwill ambassador.
