  • Grumpy Cat -- that forever frowny feline voted Meme of the Year at the 2013 Webby Awards

  • -- has landed her own movie deal.

  • According to Deadline, Grumpy Cat will star in a 'Garfield-like' feature. Garfield was,

  • of course, the original grumpy cat.

  • This continues the success of 2012 for Grumpy, a year in which she was named the year's most

  • influential cat by MSNBC and the year's most important Meme by Mashable.

  • She's certainly capitalising on her public profile, having already appeared on Today,

  • Good Morning America, CBS Evening News, and The Soup.

  • The fame doesn't seem to faze Grumpy Cat, who recently attracted huge crowds at SXSWi.

  • Her YouTube channel already has over 20 million views and merchandise adorned with her image

  • can be bought at retail and online.

  • It's unconfirmed whether Grumpy Cat will play herself in the movie. If it's like the Garfield

  • movies she'll be rendered with CGI.

  • Todd Garner of Broken Road Productions, the production house putting things in motion,

  • says: "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."
