Contrary to reports, Angelina Jolie's directorial debut doesn't involve a rape victim falling in love with her captor, an insider tells UsMagazine.com.

The erroneous story circulated earlier this week when Jolie, 35, was denied a filming permit in Bosnia because no screenplay was attached to the application, as required by law. Reports surfaced that the screenplay wasn't attached because it centered around a Serbian rapist and his Muslim victim. BBC News even reported that the Women Victims of War association said the movie was "misleading history."

"It is highly likely the script will be reviewed within a day or so," a second source tells Us, "and all of this will be resolved."
