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

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?
