In The Land Of Blood And Honey will be released December 23 in the U.S. Angie says: "The film is specific to the Bosnian War, but it's also universal… I wanted to tell a story of how human relationships and behavior are deeply affected by living inside a war." FilmDistrict CEO Peter Schlessel — responsible for releasing the movie — says: "The filmmaking is impeccable, and signals the arrival of a visceral and compelling storyteller." [Deadline Hollywood ]

If they're going to replace Hargitay (And there is no replacement for Hargitay) it should at least be someone near to or north of 40 years old. Gina Gershon, Ashley Judd, Robin Wright, Michelle Pfeiffer —all these choices would've been preferable to to JLH. I'm really not looking forward to any story arc that features a doe-eyed, idealistic rookie eager to prove herself which is the most J Love could possibly offer. Give me a woman that can stand head to head with Elliot Stabler, thank you very much.
