Angelina Jolie's life just got a bit busier.

The actress, mom of six and humanitarian is adding several other titles to her repertoire: Director, producer and screenwriter.

The Oscar winner, 35, will be jumping behind the camera to direct a love story set during the Bosnian War. "The film focuses on a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman who meet on the eve of the war and the effect the war has on their relationship," Graham King's GK Films announced.

The movie, based on a screenplay Jolie wrote, will also be produced by the actress, who, as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, visited war-torn Bosnia in April.

As for casting, Jolie will apparently be looking outside of Hollywood. The actors for her new film will be from "various ethnicities from the region of the former Yugoslavia," says the film company.
