Eva Longoria joins Billy Bob Thorton in the independent drama The Baytown Disco, which begins filming in Slidell on May 1. Barry Battles will direct the film and  also wrote the script with Griffin Hood.

The film is about three violent redneck brothers who are hired to return a kidnapped wheelchair-bound teen to his grandmother. They leave a lot of bloodshed behind to accomplish the task. The Desperate Housewives star will play the ex-wife of Thornton’s character.

This will be Longoria’s first time filming in Louisiana. Thornton shot in the state for 2001’s Monster’s Ball.
