Oscar winner Marisa Tomei has signed on to star opposite George Lopez in Pantelion Films’ “La Vida Robot,” the company announced Monday. The film is based on a true David & Goliath story about four undocumented Mexican-American teenagers from Phoenix who form a robotics team. With $800, used car parts and a dream, they build an underwater robot that wins the national robotics competition, taking down reigning champion MIT. Tomei will play a dedicated and passionate teacher whose belief in the rag-tag team helps lead them to success. Also Read: Marisa Tomei, Michael C.
