Hellbent on pleasing the underserved--and burgeoning--Hispanic audience, Lionsgate and Pantelion Film have scheduled upcoming flick "Spare Parts" for release on January 16, 2015.
Starring George Lopez, the film is based on the true story of four Hispanic high school students who start a robotics club and, with no experience and little money, work their way up to challenge the country's reigning robotics champ, MIT.
Jaime Lee Curtis, Marisa Tomei, Alexa PenaVega and Carlos Pena star alongside Lopez. Sean McNamara, who has helmed many kids TV and film projects, is directing from a script by newcomer Elissa Matsueda.
