Grumpy Cat, the movie star? Apparently! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Grumpy Cat has been cast (how did that audition go?) in her very own Christmas-themed Lifetime film, titled Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever. The plot, as described by THR:
Tim Hill (SpongeBob SquarePants) and Jeff Morris will pen the script, about a pet-store cat that is perpetually overlooked and the 12-year-old girl who can communicate with her.
This plot could literally be about Grumpy Cat watching paint dry, and we'd still watch it because of her. So this is a good step up from that!
"It brings fun and irreverence that we haven't had at Lifetime," the Vice President of original movies, Arturo Interian, said. It's nice to know that Lifetime realizes all of its movies are about melodramatic subjects. "We're so known for our heartfelt sentimentality," ...or that... "that it will poke fun at those stereotypes."
Anyway, Lifetime is currently casting the voice of Grumpy Cat, but they've got the tone of the movie—as well as the cameos—on lock. According to Interian, the movie will be "a little Home Alone and a little Die Hard," (WHAT?!) and feature cameos from other famous Internet memes. So, someone get Lil' Bub involved, STAT.
