Teri Polo will star opposite Angelina Jolie in Mandalay Entertainment's Beyond Borders which Paramount Pictures is distributing. The project will go into production early next year and will reunite Polo with the studio for which the actress stars in Domestic Disturbance opposite John Travolta and Vince Vaughn. Directed by Martin Campbell, "Borders" is a love story between an American named Sarah Jordan (Jolie) and British doctor Nick Ward (Clive Owen).

The story takes place during the course of many years and is set against the backdrop of worldwide humanitarian efforts. Polo will play Sarah's sister, Charlotte, a journalist who makes a name for herself in television covering war-torn areas around the world. Caspian Tredwell-Owen wrote the script, which is being produced by Dan Halsted. Filming begins on location in Namibia next February for the scene of the 1981 famine that prompted a massive relief effort by overseas artistes led by then Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof. Five Ethiopians will also take character roles.

Producers had originally penciled the scenic geographical contrasts of Kenya for the movie, but South Africa won the Hollywood production after a government official mistook the word Ebola for Abiola, Nigeria's late presidential hopeful, and refused filming permission because Kenya was a friend of Nigeria and did not want to tarnish the name of the country's leader.
