SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (CBS/AP) Angelina Jolie has been reissued a permit to film parts of her directorial debut in Bosnia after the country's culture ministry reviewed the script.

Jolie's Bosnian producer, Edin Sarkic, said the permit was reinstated after the minister, Gavrilo Grahovac, was given the script .

Permission to film on location was revoked last Wednesday by Grahovac, who cited incomplete paperwork. He told the BBC that the screenplay was not attached to the application.

His decision was made after the Association of Women Victims of War protested Jolie's film project after hearing rumors that the film's two main characters - a Bosnian woman and a Serb man - were a rape victim and rapist.

The Oscar-winning actress said in a written statement last Friday that it would be a shame if "unfair pressure based on wrong information" prevented her crew from shooting her film, whose title hasn't been publicly released.

"My hope is that people will hold judgment until they have seen the film," Jolie said.

The newly restored permit will now allow Jolie and her crew to start filming in Sarajevo in November. They are currently filming in Hungary.
