If you’re a human actor who’s been on audition after audition and can’t even get a cameo in a Courtney Stodden YouTube video, here’s some wonderful, soul-warming news for you: a cat who doesn’t give a fuck about being in a movie is getting her own movie. Hollywood!
Not even a year ago, Grumpy Cat was just a grumpy cat in Arizona and then one grumpy picture led to a meme, which led to Internet superstardom, which is now leading to Hollywood. Deadline says that producers Todd Garner And Sean Robins are working with Tardar Sauce’s manager and rep (yes, she has those) on a feature film starring her. They want to turn her into the next Garfield. I don’t know whether to throw my money at them or make the same face Grumpy Cat is making in that picture above. Here’s what Todd Garner had to say about the Grumpy Cat movie:
“This started off as a picture of a cat, but rare is an image that evokes that much comedy. 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.”
Their plan is to give Grumpy Cat a voice.
Since Hollywood is Hollywood and they regularly find creative ways to ruin EVERYTHING, you know they’re going to get Goopy Paltrow to be the voice of Grumpy Cat. They would do that to us. And I hope the pressures of Hollywood don’t get to Grumpy Cat. I do not want to hear about her checking into Betty Ford after getting caught smoking catnip out of a pipe while having bareback sex with some random Q-Tip.
But seriously, I need to stop. What can go wrong? I mean, the Grumpy Cat movie will be brought to us by the producer of the cinematic masterpiece that was Jack & Jill.
