Grumpy Cat Goes To Hollywood

12artsbeat-grumpycat-blog480

Lifetime Network has announced that it has just started shooting Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.  Declared the Internet’s Most Influential Cat by Friskies for the month of July, has her own Cheerios commercial, and even made a guest appearance on QVC selling life-sized Grumpy Cat plushies.  I thought that there wasn’t anything else she could “invade” with her grumpy cuteness.  This was a very pleasant surprise.

In her upcoming movie written by Tim Hill and Jeff Morris, she plays a pet store cat that everyone overlooks and only a 12-year-old girl can communicate with her.  At the time of writing this post, Lifetime is currently casting the voice for Grumpy Cat.  The network has even said that the movie will be like a cross between Home Alone and Die Hard (I wonder if Grumpy Cat will be John McClain, lol).

Here’s a some trivia about the Internet’s famous kitty.  Grumpy Cat’s actual name is Tardar Sauce, named after the color of her fur.  She had her rise to fame from a photo that her owner’s brother had posted on Reddit.  Since her debut on the internet, she has had a book written about her (I have her book, it’s a cute book about how to become and stay grumpy with lots of pictures of the beloved kitty), a Cheerios commercial, plushie, and even a short-lived movie contract.

I’ll be anxiously awaiting the airing of her TV movie, it’ll be airing sometime this Christmas (2014).  If you’re interested, I’ll post the links I got the information for this post from, as well as links to her book both digital and hard copy at the end of this post.  Thanks for reading! 😀
