Oscar winner Angelina Jolie will be writing and directing her first feature film, according to Us Magazine. The British film company GK Films has released a statement to confirm this news on Tuesday. She will not be starring in the film, however.

The film, which will be Jolie’s first stint at screenwriting, will be a romance during the ‘90s Bosnian war. The Salt star said it is “a love story, not a political statement,” in a recent statement by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), for which she’s goodwill ambassador.

Cast members will be of “various ethnicities of the former Yugoslavia,” states GK Films. “I would like to involve as many local people as possible and learn as much as I can,” added Jolie in the UNHCR statement.

She was seen over the weekend at Budapest, Hungary, looking for set locations, with her twins Knox and Vivienne. She also went to Sarajevo, Bosnia to visit leaders and talk about the war refugees.
