Grumpy Cat Gets Movie Deal

Screen shot 2014-11-26 at 12.59.04 PMFile under…strange cat stories.

Yes, the cat that launched a thousand Internet memes is getting her own Lifetime original movie. Grumpy Cat is set to star in a new Christmas special for the network fondly titled “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.”  The naturally frowning feline, who’s made appearances on talk shows and award shows, has her own merchandise line, enchants thousands of followers on Twitter is now getting her big break with a leading role that is perfect for the holidays.

The tv movie will follow a pet store cat in need of attention and the little girl who befriends her.  A voice will soon accompany that famous mug. Lifetime VP of original movies Arturo Interian says the film will be a mix of “Home Alone” and “Die Hard….It brings fun and irreverence that we haven’t had at Lifetime,” Interian told The Hollywood Reporter.  Fans shouldn’t worry about GC being overworked. After an exhausting schedule of book deals and TV appearances, the kitty’s manager — yes, she has one of those, too — is counting on them sharing a very “posh” trailer when filming begins. This could start a new trend of cat-momangers.
