Grumpy Cat is about to get a whole bigger, because she is getting her own movie!

Grumpy Cat will star in a live-action, Garfield-like movie made by Todd Garner and Sean Robins the team behind Zookeeper and Jack and Jill.

Grumpy Cat has come a long way since her introduction to the web.

"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."

Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tarder Sauce, was named the "most influencial cat of 2012" by MSNBC and has appeared on numerous television shows.

She also won a Webby Award for Meme of the Year, has a Facebook page with over 930,000 "likes," and has over 20 million YouTube views.

Maybe this will be something for her to crack a smile over, but probably not.
