Grumpy Cat Lands a Movie Deal

Take that film degree and stick it where the sun don't shine, because Arizona's own Grumpy Cat (a.k.a. Tardar Suace) just landed her first movie deal.

The movie will be a collaborative project between Grumpy Cat's team, manager Ben Lashes and rep Al Hassas, and Broken Roads Productions, the company behind such films as Kevin James' Paul Blart Mall Cop and Adam Sandler's Jack and Jill.

While very little has been revealed about the upcoming film, we do know that the Internet famous feline from Arizona will have a speaking role à la the live-action stylings of the Garfield movie.

Of course this whole production should come as no surprise after Lil' Bub, a seemingly animatronic cat born without teeth or proper bone development, debuted her film at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.

Oh wait, you haven't seen it?

You're welcome.
