Filming of Angelina Jolie's hard-hitting new movie A Mighty Heart has caused controversy in Pakistan when the crew was found guilty of shooting without permission.

The production crew has been caught filming scenes in Karachi and Islamabad without permission, according to Pakistani reports, and the shoot has been shut down.

In a statement released to The Pakistan Daily Times, a government official says, "No request by the film unit to shoot in Pakistan had been made to the embassy."

The film is based on Mariane Pearl's memoir about the kidnap and murder of her journalist husband Daniel Pearl, who went missing in Pakistan in 2002 while researching a story about Muslim fundamentalists for the Wall Street Journal.
