Eva Longoria Parker and Christian Slater have joined the cast of the independent Latino comedy "Without Men."
According to Variety, Gabriela Tagliavini ("Ladies' Night," "30 Days Until I'm Famous") is writing and directing. The script was adapted from the international bestseller "Tales From the Town of Widows" by James Canon.
The cast includes Paul Rodriguez, Oscar Nunez, Judy Reyes, Monica Huarte, Maria Conchita Alonso and Kate del Castillo.
The film focuses on Longoria's character as she leads a group of women in a remote Latin American village who have to fend for themselves after their men leave to fight in a civil war. The women refuse to give up their power when the men return.
Principal photography is underway near Santa Barbara with Anthony Moody, Lucas Jarach and Jason Price producing.
