Grumpy Cat is going to be in a movie with Will Ferrell and Jack Black

If you thought making a movie based on the board game Battleship was a bad idea, this one is sure to keep you unhappy: People are working hard to make a movie based on Grumpy Cat, the bitterest Internet meme to ever end up on t-shirts at Hot Topic.

Tardar Sauce the cat may very well end up on the big screen, thanks to a deal by Broken Road producers Todd Garner and Sean Robins with the kitty's manager Ben Lashes and representative Al Hassas, reports. The cat will be able to talk and be dour about any number of things, with Will Ferrell and Jack Black attached to play human characters for now, the site says.

“This started off as a picture of a cat, but rare is an image that evokes that much comedy,” Garner said. “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.” Could it be any worse than the forthcoming Candyland? Hey, Garfield needs the competition.
