Vertical Y&R Soap Banner Y&R's Eva Longoria strikes deal with Universal Pictures
Former The Young and the Restless star Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella Braña) and Universal Pictures have struck a deal that includes the company's acquisition of rights to My Daughter's Quinceañera.

Congratulations are in order for The Young and the Restless alum Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella Braña), who just struck a two-year, first-look deal with Universal Pictures, set to catapult her from the world of television into the world of motion pictures.

The first film Universal has the rights to is My Daughter's Quinceañera, a pitch from Lauren Iungerich (creator of MTV's Awkward) that Longoria and her UnbeliEVAble Entertainment producing partner, Ben Spector, will produce, reports Deadline. The film centers on an overwhelmed single father who is faced with the prospect of planning the quinceañera of his daughter's dreams.

At the moment, Longoria is in Wales, filming BBC Two's high-end comedy miniseries Decline and Fall, an adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's classic social satire. She will next be seen in Ricardo de Montreuil's Lowriders, which premiered at this year's L.A. Film Festival. The busy actress also just launched a clothing line, which you can read more about here.

What do you think about Longoria's deal with Universal Pictures? Are you inspired by all she's been able to achieve in her career? We want to hear from you -- and there are many ways you can share your thoughts.
