Grumpy Cat Gets a Movie Deal

Grumpy Cat will star in a movie to be made for Lifetime. The title is Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. What? You expected Grumpy Cat to have a wonderful Christmas?

Tim Hill (SpongeBob SquarePants) and Jeff Morris will pen the script, about a pet-store cat that is perpetually overlooked and the 12-year-old girl who can communicate with her. "It brings fun and irreverence that we haven't had at Lifetime," says vp original movies Arturo Interian, noting that his teenage daughters are fans of Grumpy and gave him the initial idea for the project. "We're so known for our heartfelt sentimentality that it will poke fun at those stereotypes."

Lifetime is casting the voice of Grumpy for the live-action project, which will shoot this summer. The cable network said the movie, which Interian describes as "a little Home Alone and a little Die Hard," would also feature cameos from other famous Internet memes.

Although a premiere date wasn’t specified in the article at The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will supposedly air in December. -via Uproxx
