According to Variety, Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria is set to take her first starring film role in Touchstone's romantic comedy, Deep in the Heart of Texas. [My head is so full of Tony Parker/San Antonio Spurs jokes right now that I can hardly type. Give me a second.] In the film, Longoria will play "a spoiled Beverly Hills diva who becomes a fish out of water when she is relocated to San Antonio to run the new Latin division of her ad agency." Hmm. Eva Longoria as a spoiled diva? Why, that just might work!

The film was just recently pitched to Touchstone, so it'll be awhile before it gets anywhere near production; the Desperate Housewives break in the summer of 2007 is likely the earliest it could shoot. The script is currently being written by pitchers Pamela Buchignani and Lynnette Ramirez.
