Grumpy Cat, the internet meme feline star who has taken over social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter will now star in her very own big screen film.
Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, and her manager, Ben Lashes, have made a deal with Broken Road Productions to make what is being described as, ‘Garfield’-like feature film”, featuring the worlds favorite cat with the unhappy face.
Tardar is a big, sweetie of a cat according to her parents/owners, Bryan and Tabatha Bundsen but she just always has a sourpuss frown on her face that has earned her the title, Grumpy Cat, and tons of fans.
She became the internet sensation that she is when her owners decided to post a picture they took of her on Reddit.
“She was lying in my lap and she looked extremely grumpy so I decided to put it on Reddit, it went viral and I never expected it.”
Viral indeed, people started taking Tard’s picture, and adding funny quotes, text, on it and sharing everywhere online. Bryan then decided after someone started a Twitter account, @ItsThe GrumpyCat to start his own site, grumpycats.com since she became a internet star.
Now, Tardar can be a real star with the upcoming movie role and they say that in the new film she will speak, which has many wondering whose voice will be “grumpy” enough to fit Tardar’s persona?
Once word got out about a movie based on Tardar, fans have shown positive interest in the new film.
Yahoo Movies facebook page asked fans who would they like to have be the voice of Grumpy Cat and there were some pretty great responses such as;
Betty White, Morgan Freeman, Seth McFarlane, Robin Williams, James Earl Jones, Alan Rickman, Janeane Gafofolo, Gilbert Godfried, Kevin James, and Wanda Sykes to name a few.
Seeing that Tardar is a female, some of those may not work, but all seem to be a pretty good fit to be the sourpussed feline’s voiceover.
The Grumpy Cat meme’s have helped Tard become a television star as well, she and her owners, have gotten a deal with the cat food company, friskies, and will have a commercial that will be out soon and a book deal.
Tardar, who they call Tard has that grumpy face look for a reason and not because she is unhappy.
Tard, Bryan says, has feline dwarfism, and that causes her to have small sighs and stiff backlegs, and to have the sad, grumpy pout.
Bryan said, “other than that she is a healthy and happy cat.”
Happy, healthy and famous.
