Angelina Jolie talks to actor Goran Jetvic during the filming of her yet untitled directorial debut in Esztergom, Hungary, on Nov. 12.

No one is ever going to accuse Angelina Jolie of being a slacker. She's raising six kids, she's an active humanitarian, and she's filming her as-yet-untitled directorial debut in Budapest, Hungary.

As for the latter project, Jolie tells Hungarian news outlet Vasarnapi Hirek that she filmed the entire thing twice, once in English and once using the actors' native languages of the former Yugoslavia.

"We actually shot a full version in their native language and we shot a full version in English. We shot two complete films. I was only able to do it because the actors were so fluent in English so they were willing to work hard and do the scenes in two languages," Jolie said.

As for which version audiences might see, Jolie said it might be up to each country in which the film is distributed. "We talked to the distributors about it and they might just offer every country an option. So if they want it in the native language they can have it. That's the plan," Jolie said. The film does not yet have a release date.
