Angelina Jolie has revealed she has written a script focusing on the conflict in Afghanistan.

The Hollywood star recently made her directorial debut with In The Land Of Blood And Honey, a romance set against the backdrop of the Bosnian war.

The actress, who has six kids with partner Brad Pitt, said she's not yet sure whether she will follow it up with another film on such serious material - but she has already penned a script .

She said: "I did write something on Afghanistan. Nobody's seen it yet. Brad hasn't seen it. It's hidden. So I don't know how very good it is, but it's been a pleasure to write."

Meanwhile, the sole film distributor in the Serb-run part of Bosnia has said Serbs have no interest in seeing In The Land Of Blood And Honey so he won't be screening it.

Vladimir Ljevak said Angelina's film would not attract an audience as it portrays Serbs as the bad guys.

A Small group of Muslim Bosniaks who have returned to their homes in the Serb part of the country say instead they plan to organise private screenings.

The drama about a Serb soldier who finds his ex-lover, a Muslim Bosniak woman, among sex slaves in a camp is set to make its full debut in Sarajevo this week and will be shown in theatres in the Bosniak-Croat part of Bosnia.
