Good news for people who like good news about cats who like bad news: Grumpy Cat, the Internet's most beloved foul-tempered feline, has signed a deal to star in a "Garfield-like" family movie about a talking cat.
Grumpy Cat's rep Al Hassas and manager Ben Lashes (a cat with a manager and a rep — what an age we live in!) have joined forces with Todd Garner and Sean Robins of Broken Road Productions (Zookeeper, Jack and Jill) to package the as-yet-untitled magnum opus.
"This started off as a picture of a cat, but rare is an image that evokes that much comedy," Garner told Deadline. "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."
