BANJA LUKA, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) - Italian actress Monica Bellucci says her next movie will be filmed in Bosnia by Serbian director Emir Kusturica.

Bellucci arrived in Banja Luka, the capital of the Serb region of Bosnia, on Saturday and was met by Kusturica. The two proceeded to a village in Serbia that he has built and where he is organizing a film festival.

Bellucci and Kusturica provided little information about the forthcoming movie, except to say it will be titled "Love and War" and that the shooting will begin in May in the Bosnian town of Trebinje.

The actress has appeared in movies such as "That Summer," "The Passion of the Christ" and "The Matrix Reloaded."
