ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at a clip from Spare Parts featuring real-life husband and wife, Carlos and Alexa PenaVega. Opening in theaters on January 16, the drummed also stars George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis, Esai Morales, Jose Julian, David Del Rio, Oscar Gutierrez, Alessandra Rosaldo and Marisa Tomei.
Spare Parts is a true life story about four Hispanic high school students who form a robotics club under the leadership of their school’s newest teacher, Fredi (Lopez). With no experience, 800 bucks, used car parts and a dream, this rag tag team goes up against the country’s reigning robotics champion, MIT. On their journey, they learn not only how to build a robot- they learn to build a bond that will last a lifetime.
Directed by Sean McNamara, the Pantelion/Lionsgate release is based on the Wired magazine article “La Vida Robot,” by Joshua Davis. The screenplay was written by Elissa Matsueda. Spare Parts was produced by Benjamin Odell, George Lopez, Leslie Kolins Small, David Alpert, and Rick Jacobs, and executive produced by Fernando Pérez Gavilan, Paul Presburger, James McNamara, Sean Mcnamara and Lawrence Mattis.
