Stolen idea

Angelina Jolie has shut down claims made in the lawsuit, filed by James Braddock, that she stole the idea for her directorial debut, In The Land of Blood and Honey, from his 2007 book A Soul Shattering, which allegedly tells a similar story of a Bosnian woman stuck in rape camps during the mid-'90s.

Although Braddock alleges in the lawsuit that he met with producer Eden Sarkic on a number of occasions, trying to get it made into a film, before they went ahead without him, Angelina asserts:

"There are many books and documentaries that I did pull from. It's a combination of many people's stories. But that particular book I've never seen."
