Rade Serbedzija to star in Angelina Jolie's Bosnian war flim

08.25.2010

Rade Serbedzija (MIDDLE MEN, BATMAN BEGINS, SNATCH) is one of those actors you've probably seen in dozens of films. The man just seems to get loads of work, and deservedly so, as he's usually always a very memorable element.

Today, in an interview with Serbian publication Blic Online, the Croatian thespian reveals that he will be joining the cast of Angelina Jolie's upcoming love story set amidst the Bosnian war. He will play the father of the main hero, a Serbian patriot.

Jolie had stated previously that the film is "a love story, not a political statement." Serbedzija re-affirms her position on the film and elaborates much more on what to expect from the story itself:

"For almost two months already I have been in contact with Angelina Jolie. She tried to contact me via my agents and they told her that I am not acting in movies on war in former Yugoslavia. I rejected all offers because scenarios were mainly poor and onesided."

"When she was told why I had rejected her offer, Angelina contacted me by phone and asked me to read the scenario. The text is fantastic. It is a love story about a young Serb and a Muslim woman who fell in love several evenings before beginning of war in Bosnia. That's how film begins. Then follows war madness... Their love becomes passionate but impossible."


You can read the entire interview with Serbedzija RIGHT HERE (but be careful when you get to the second paragraph I quoted above, as it contains a plot spoiler).
Extra Tidbit: Seriously, how awesome is Serbedzija in SNATCH?

A love story told during the Bosnian War is going to be inseparable from a political statement.

I think Rade is the man, but love stories inside a war movie or vice versa, suck. For instance: Pearl Harbor, Enemy at the Gates. Now look at Platoon or Black Hawk Down. I rest my case.

what about The English Patient? Not that I'm trting to compare Jolie to Minghella, but that movie was solid, and there's probably others I'm forgetting. Shit, even Avatar had a solid love story/war motif

My mother worked with him when he was a celebrated stage actor in the former Yugoslavia. Great guy. Loved him in Eyes Wide Shut & 24 as well.

"Sneaky fuckin' Russian." - Various characters


"Boris the Blade, or Boris "the Bullet Dodger." As bent as the Soviet sickle, and as hard as the hammer that crosses it. Apparently, it's just impossible to kill the bastard." - Turkish

Bullet Tooth Tony: "Cause he dodges bullets."

Snatch is a great movie. Maybe Brad Pitt's best movie and performance next to Fight Club.

Across the Tracks! Rick Schroeder and Brad Pitt! I am kidding! I agree though, Snatch, Fight Club, Inglourious Basterds, True Romance and The Assassination of Jesse James by..., are my some of my Brad Pitt favourites.

If I had to pick a favorite character in Snatch...

...Serbedzija is awesome.

Broken English is a pretty good movie to see him in (though, IMO not a good movie in itself). I only think of it because it's the only movie I've seen where he's actually playing a Croatian. And he was the best thing in it.
