2013 Meme of the Year award winner Grumpy Cat, will in fact get her own feature length film, reports The Guardian. The feline internet sensation gained viral internet fame last year with her picture showing her “not impressed” face. She will be animated, giving her speech and a personality. Hollywood movie producers are hoping to create a film much like another famous comic feline, Garfield.
My only question is, why?
There are so many other filmmakers out there with stories to share and art to reveal that aren’t getting green lit. Or they have to wait years and years before their work be recognized. But here we have a cat that, due to unfortunate circumstances, has an expression that renders her to be an internet sensation and because she has won several awards and alotted millions of views, producers are hoping to cash in on this success.
But will Grumpy Cat’s 15 minutes soon run out? With people’s obsession with viral videos and even humans getting famous from them, probably not. I’m just not too sure if this movie will make millions or see mildly disappointing success like the two Garfield films.
With the way mainsteam media is going, I wouldn’t be surprised if the goats who yell like humans will get their own sitcom in the near future…
