Facebook's Own Grumpy Cat To Become 'New Garfield' In Hollywood Movie

Facebook sensation Grumpy Cat is set to make her film debut as her agent signs a deal with Broken Road Productions.

The feline, whose frowny features have been plastered all over the social networking community captioned by headlines suggesting varying degrees of displeasure, is set to become the new Garfield  after her agent Ben Lashes landed her a movie deal; although Lashes admitted to mashable.com, 'She hates movies'. And it's not this moggy's first foray into the world of celebrity having been crowned Queen of Social at this year's SXSW festival (though one doubts this cheered her up at all), and recently completed her upcoming first book Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book: Disgruntled Tips and Activities Designed to Put a Frown on Your Face which she is due to promote soon.

Tardar Sauce, as she is known by her owners, looks so unusually moody due to dwarfism and having an underbite, but it's clear she's not letting this get in the way of her showbiz career. Todd Garner from Broken Road Productions told The Guardian, 'This started off as a picture of a cat, but rare is an image that evokes that much comedy. 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.
