Longoria, 37, is moving on from the character of Gabrielle Solis from 'Desperate Housewives' with the action movie which also stars Billy Bob Thornton, reported a website.
"This couldn't be more different to 'Desperate Housewives'. This is not really one for the girls. This is real boys' stuff. It is very violent. There is a lot of blood and guts and shooting and guns," she said.
Longoria said she also wants to produce films. "The reason I love to produce is I have a very strong business mind so I like putting the pieces together and also the creative process" she had said.
