Angelina Jolie looks to have a lawsuit against her dismissed.

The actress is being sued by a Croatian journalist, who claims her 2011 movie 'In the Land of Blood' about a romance during the Bosnian civil war is a rip-off of his novel 'The Soul Shattering', but a federal court ruled on Friday (29.03.13) that they are not ''substantially similar''.

Author James Braddock filed a lawsuit against Angelina, GK Films and distributor Film District three weeks before the movie was released, claiming it violated his copyright and claimed one of the film's producers, Edin Sarkic, had previously read his book and had discussed making a movie out of it.

But according to gossip website RadarOnline.com, U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee said there weren't enough similarities between the novel and the movie to prove copyright violation and she ordered Mr. Braddock to show cause why the action shouldn't be dismissed without prejudice before April 12.

Meanwhile, Angelina - who has six children with her fiance Brad Pitt - will reportedly tie the knot in May.

Brad applied for a marriage licence in February, which states that they must wed within 90 days.

It was recently reported that their wedding could clash with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston's nuptials with Justin Theroux.
