George Lopez will be livin’ La Vida Robot…
The 52-year-old Mexican American actor/comedian will star opposite Marisa Tomei in La Vida Robot, the true story adapted from a WIRED article about four undocumented Mexican-American teenagers who form a robotics team in Phoenix. They go up against the best from M.I.T. in the national robotics championship with an entry made from $800 and used car parts.
Lionsgate and Televisa’s Pantelion will co-produce the film with Lopez’s Travieso Productions.
In addition to Lopez and Tomei, the film stars Breaking Bad’s Steven Michael Quezada and Big Time Rush’s Carlos Pena Jr.
La Vida Robot is currently filming on location in New Mexico under helmer Sean McNamara.
