She’s most famous for her movie star pout so it comes as no surprise the Internet’s best brooding sensation is getting her own movie deal. 

Tardar Sauce, better known as Grumpy Cat, is set to make a “Garfield-like” family comedy film with Broken Road Productions, the same company behind the 2011 flick, Jack and Jill, starring Adam Sandler. 

America’s favorite miserable cat will soon star alongside comedians Will Ferrell and Jack Black. The movie plans to assign Grumpy a voice, making her famous sarcastic remarks come to life. 

Grumpy’s road to fame is the epitome of the modern-day celebrity as the feline first garnered popularity through Reddit.

After her guardian Tabatha Bundesen posted pictures of the famous frown, the pictures quickly went viral and the rest is history. 

The sulking cat with feline dwarfism has already charmed a Hollywood hunk, starred in a Friskies commercial, won Meme of the Year at the 2013 Webby Awards, published a book, and signed with a Los Angeles talent manager Ben Lashes.

But Grumpy Cat is not one to be amused by something like a major movie deal. The Wall Street Journal reports, “When he told his client that she was heading to Hollywood, she looked bored. ‘She hates movies,’ says Mr. Lashes of his client.” 

The release date of the film has not been disclosed yet, but we certainly cannot wait to see Grumpy in action!
