Cranky-faced feline inspires movie.
Internet sensation and Meme of the Year at the 2013 Webby Awards, Grumpy Cat (real name Tardar Sauce), is headed to the big screen, according to Deadline.
Described as a ‘Garfield’-like feature film with the famous frowning feline at the centre, the film will be produced by Todd Garner and Sean Robins of Broken Road, and Ben Lashes and Al Hassas aka Grumpy Cat’s manager and rep (yes, the cat has representation).
“This started off as a picture of a cat, but rare is an image that evokes that much comedy,” said producer Garner. “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.”
