Grumpy Cat is getting a Christmas movie
Grumpy Cat is headed to the small screen. Lifetime has announced that the internet-famous cat will be appearing in a special Christmas movie. And it won’t be animated, either. The movie will feature the actual cat with a yet-to-be-cast actor doing voice work for her. The movie will be about a perpetually overlooked pet store cat and the 12-year-old girl who understands her.
The movie will also feature cameos from other famous internet memes, so brush up those acting skills, David at the dentist. Shooting will happen this summer, with casting beginning now. Arturo Interian, VP of original movies at Lifetime, says the film will be “a little ‘Home Alone’ and a little ‘Die Hard.’” Let your imagination fill in the rest.
We spoke to Grumpy Cat a few months ago, which you can read about here.
