Grumpy Cat's ready for her closeup.
According to reports, the feline famous for her sourpuss could soon have a movie built around her. Entertainment Weekly describes it as a "Garfield"-esque tale in which Grumpy Cat - real name, Tardar Sauce - would have the ability to speak.
Grumpy Cat's already Internet famous thanks to the popular meme that got its start last September, after the brother of Grumpy Cat's owner shared some of the pet's photos on Reddit.
The unlikely star of SXSW: Grumpy Cat
According to Deadline, Grumpy Cat's representation - yes, the cat has representation - is working with Broken Road's Sean Robins and Todd Garner to produce the project.
Garner told Deadline, which first reported the story, that the potential for pleasing family film is pretty clear.
“This started off as a picture of a cat, but rare is an image that evokes that much comedy,” Garner said. “You read all of the memes and the comments, and one is funnier than the next. We think we can build a big family comedy around this character.”
Think Grumpy Cat will finally be impressed?
I love this Grumpy cat image, I look forward to the Movie coming out and think we will all love it.....love all the jokes and pics of Grumpy Cat......fantastic stuff!!
While I think the memes are funny, I don't know if Grumpy Cat, the movie would be really appealing to the masses. However, kudos to this cat's owner for getting all the money she can from this cat.
Once again the power of redditors has presented itself. Seems like that's where many Internet sensations start nowadays, ask Daniel Tosh
While I think the photos of this cat are fun, and I really love the little diddy someone wrote "grumpy kitty" to go with the tune of Sheldon Cooper's "Sleepy kitty" from Big Bang Theory...I really don't see a movie built around this particular feline.
yeah yeah...I had my time in the spotlight too...but people forget you soon enough and then you start taking drugs...oh man I miss my good friend Bill the Cat...poor guy died of acne.
Or it's A Ragdoll
Ilove this cat " it's a ragamuffin" they are sooo cute
Will Grumpy Cat finally be impressed?
The cat's name is TARD – as in retard. The owner admitted it – I read it myself – but has since retracted that statement.Someone started calling her Tarder Sauce, and now the owner has claimed that's what it's been all along. It's just to avoid having to admit to naming the cat an insensitive term. I am personally more offended by the perpetual lie, than I am naming the cat Tard. Just admit it already. Coward.
Im sorry but how the hell are you offended by the 'lie' or 'retracted statement'? How has it affected YOU? Are you retarded? D1ck.
I don't know what your "T" initial stands for, but I'm betting I would find it offensive. What kind of coward hides behind an initial?
I dont see your last name and address in your reply to me...coward
As for my initial, 'T' stands for "Im better than you"
Wow, so much stupidity and infantile nonsense in your reply there, T, that I don't even know where to begin...
If you are seriously offended by this "perpetual lie"...get a life. I suppose EVERYTHING you read online is true. No one EVER jokes online either....the owner couldn't POSSIBLY have made that statement and then thought, "you know what, that wasn't really very funny after all." and taken that comment down....right? Seriously...get over it.
Seems we have a Tard in the article and another Tard posting comments to it. That's what the T stands for.
just because you will NEVER be as good as me is no reason to be grumpy...oh wait...yes it is
Come on, T. Time for your nap. Run along like a good little boy. I'll give you some cookies and milk when you wake up. :)
ME NO WANT TO...WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA..... :'(
No you are wrong, Tard always stood for Tardar sauce, stop trying to spoil the image and the fun knucklehead.
This is offeNsive to is-lame!
huh....more talent than most of todays "hot" stars
I suppose simple minds are easily amused! and thats what hollywood and the movie industry are banking on if they make a movie of this grumpy fn cat, mentally challenged minds!
Calling people names for liking something you don't is the TRUE test of a simple mind.
Oh yeah? Funny is funny LD....dumb statement and your avatar name speaks volumes.
You should probably include yourself in the simple mind statement.
FACT: AND THEY GIVE THE GLORY TO ANIMALS RATHER THAN GOD....
Animals give more love.
Glory to Odin! May he judge mercifully from Asgard.
FACT: NEED I REMIND EVERYONE THAT I AM A FCUKING IDIOT?
FACT: There is living proof that animals exist. As for a god....no proof. No proof of a magical sky fairy. None!
"Think Grumpy Cat will finally be impressed?" – NO! :P
I want one!
Went for it like a cat...we can ignore her–it goes further then a tool
It's a good thing I'm not around a cat like that....cause I would just love to tickle a cat that looks so grumpy. It would appear to be a bad idea to try to tickle grumpy people also....they just seem to get grumpier.
I don't mind it if a stranger tickles me; in fact, I usually return the favor and tickle their face with a hammer.
I love this cat, grumpy is a bum, lol
I LOVE HER <3
While I believe that Grumpy Cat will not be impressed in the slightest bit, my cats and I will be viewing as we take direction in our lives from Grumps the cat. Ol' Tardar hasnt steered us wrong yet!!!!
Noooo...leave Grumpy Cat alone! As soon as Hollywood gets a hold of anything, it's like the kiss of death.

Just used my last gerbil and now I'm fresh out. Does anyone have a spare they can loan me?
but no Michael (personally) truth-–
Originality Hollywood, where did it go?
The reason things like Grumpy Cat become sensations is because the entertainment industry is so filled with senseless glut that anything fresh attracts us. Take the fresh thing and make it into more senseless glut, and we'll just move on to the next. Producers of the Grumpy Cat movie, don't waste your money.
Owner: Tardar Sauce, you're going to be on TV!
Grumpy cat: NO.
OMG! Her name's not politically correct? That makes Mr. Flibble very cross. .......... Who cares!
I love Grumpy the cat,so cute,I wish I could reach in the tv screen and take her out,and give her a big kiss
I can't wait to see how they handle the fact that the cat's real, un-PC name is Tardar (as in 'retarded') Sauce.
The name is spelled that way because the owner's young daughter named the cat herself, after mentioning that grumpy cat's fur color reminded her of tartar sauce. So, it's an innocent misspelling by a child, not a derogatory name for the mentally challenged.
Please keep internet memes on the internet. You know the meme is officially dead when it shows up Family Guy or a movie is made about it.
The cat IS named Tardar Sauce, with a D.
I love Grumpy Cat!
Wait a minute...the perfect spot for Grump Cat would be as one of the new judges for American Idol.
This sounds like a disaster in the making. The cat's expression says it all.
Grumpy Cat won't be impressed until CNN can publish an article without a typo.
Make a movie called No1Curr next.
