BATTLE OF KOSOVO
NEW HISTORICAL EPIC MOVIE
Director of War World II epic drama Dara of Jasenovac which was one of the biggest contenders for best foreign film during the nominations race for Oscars last year, Gaga Antonijević, is preparing another massive historical drama: this time he will helm a sweeping historical epic BATTLE OF KOSOVO which will follow the famous battle between Serbian defenders and Turkish invaders that happened in 1389 at Kosovo field. The battle which
saw around 10,000 Serbs fighting against close to 40,000 Ottomans, was celebrated as Serbian victory around Europe of that time, but both Serbs and Turks consider it their personal defeat as Serbs lost all their knights and nobles together with their leader knez Lazar, while the Ottomans lost their sultan Murad who was killed by Serbian hero Milos Obilic and his courageous
knights. It is interesting that some of the lead roles are already known: Nenad Jezdić will play knez Lazar himself, while Nataša Ninković is set to play his wife kneginya Militza who had to take over the throne with her son prince Stefan after the demise of her whole family, including her husband, nine brothers and father, in the tragic battle. The shooting will start this summer.
