Emir Kusturica, the renowned Serbian director, refused to shoot the movie representing the Russian version of August events. According to the film director, he had other obligations for the next 4 years - The Guardian.


The Serbian director promised to shoot a movie on 5-day war in 2008. The film must have been based on the articles of journalist Fatima Salkazanova. The due negotiations were conducted between Kusturica and A.Toto'onov, the Russian president's plenipotentiary to North Ossetia.

In early October 2009 the director visited South Ossetia, allegedly for gathering materials. In the course of his visit he publicly condemned Georgia's aggression.

Not so long ago it was announced that Emir Kusturica would be awarded with Patriarch Alexiy II prize for activities on reinforcement of unity of Orthodox peoples. The ceremony will take place in January 2010.

Meanwhile in Georgia Renny Harlin ,the Die Hard 2 director, continues filming of a movie on the August events. Andy Garcia plays the role of Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia.
