Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria has signed to appear in "Visions," a horror film to be directed by "Saw" series veteran Kevin Greutert, Deadline reported.

Longoria joins a cast that already includes Isla Fisher, Anson Mount and Gillian Jacobs.

Jim Parsons, of "The Big Bang Theory," is in talks to join the project, Deadline said.

Fisher plays a pregnant woman plagued by visions of a "sinister hooded figure," while Longoria's character is her best friend.

Longoria is now at work on "Refugio," the directorial debut of Oscar-nominated actor Demian Bechir, after shooting "Frontera" with Michael Peña and Ed Harris.

Besides "Visions," Longoria has signed to appear in "Any Day," a drama also featuring Sean Bean and Kate Walsh. EFE
