Now that the last filmed pre-strike episode of Desperate Housewives has already aired, fans are treated with a long list of reruns until the writers' strike is finally resolved.  With the long wait ahead, fans are now looking for ways to catch a glimpse of the residents of Wisteria Lane.

In the meantime, avid supporters can catch other projects of the cast members of Desperate Housewives.  Like other cast members focusing on film, Eva Longoria Parker, who plays Gabrielle on the ABC dramedy, will soon surface the big screen as she stars in the movie Over Her Dead Body.

Described as a fantasy romantic comedy, Over Her Dead Body finds the Desperate Housewives actress in a story about a ghost who tries to sabotage her former boyfriend's current relationship with a psychic.

Parker plays Kate, who gets killed on her way to her wedding.  Devastated by her sudden death, her fiancé Henry reluctantly agrees to consult a psychic named Ashley at the influence of his sister Chloe.  Despite his doubts over her psychic abilities, Henry finds himself falling hard for Ashley, and vice versa.  However, Henry comes with some baggage as Ashley is being haunted by Kate's ghost, who is determined to keep Henry single and who considers it her heavenly task to break up Henry and Ashley's budding romance.

Joining Parker in this movie is actor Paul Rudd, who is credited for his roles in Clueless, Wet Hot American Summer, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.  Rudd, who also appeared on the television series Friends as Phoebe's husband Mike Hannigan, plays the role of Henry, the fiancé of Parker's character.

Other film cast members include Lake Bell, who plays Ashley, and Lindsay Sloane, who plays Chloe.

Over Her Dead Body is written and directed by Jeff Lowell, and is expected to hit the theaters on February 1.
