Well, you can stop waiting. The apocalypse is here.
Yes, Hollywood has decided it is time to make a movie based on a meme, even though the average life span of a meme is, oh, six seconds, while a movie lasts a whole two hours.
The Grumpy Cat meme will soon have his own Garfield-style feature film. The kitty (actual name: Tardar Sauce) will also be given a voice. As producer Todd Garner puts it: “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.”
Think that grouchy face won’t be consistently funny for 90 minutes or more? You’re not alone. We’re making our own Grumpy Cat face at the idea of memes being turned into movies, and in fact, we’ve even made a meme about it. But since you can’t buck a trend that Hollywood is determined to wring money out of, we’re going ahead and suggesting some other popular memes that could be made into movies…
