This is some news that will surely turn that feline frown upside down.

Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the very famous cat known as Grumpy Cat will star in her very own Lifetime movie.

Titled “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” the live-action project will revolve around a pet-store cat who is continually overlooked, but she soon finds company in a 12-year-old girl who can communicate with her.

Written by Tim Hill (“SpongeBob SquarePants”) and Jeff Morris, the network is currently in the process of casting Grumpy’s voice for the movie that is said to be “a little ‘Home Alone’ and a little ‘Die Hard.’” In addition to Grumpy, whose real name is Tardar Sauce and became popular online in 2012 after her owner posted a photo of her on Reddit, the TV movie will also feature other famous Internet memes.

The project is set to shoot this summer, and let’s hope it will also somehow feature the importance of animal rescue. Just maybe that 12-year-old girl will finally rescue Grumpy from the pet store and take her home for the holidays — and for good.
