Eva Longoria Set for Directorial Debut and Starring Role in '24-7'
Eva Longoria Baston has plans to be both in front of and behind the camera.
The "Overboard" actress will soon make her feature directorial debut, but that's apparently not enough. Longoria Baston will direct, star in, and produce the upcoming comedy "24-7," THR reports. Her co-stars so far include Kerry Washington.
Longoria Baston will be working from a script written by Sarah Rothschild. The story focuses on a group of female accountants trying to solve a fraud case and save their jobs before of a group of their male co-workers manages to do so. Character details haven't been revealed, but our guess is that Longoria Baston and Washington are likely playing accountants.
Both actresses will double as producers on the Universal Pictures flick. Longoria Baston will produce through UnbeliEVAble Entertainment with Ben Spector, while Washington produces through Simpson Street. FiegCo Entertainment's Paul Feig and Jessie Henderson are also set to produce.
The project's executive producers include Sara Scott and Christine Sun for Universal, Will Rack for UnbeliEVAble, and Pilar Savone for Simpson Street.
