NEW YORK — Look for Grumpy Cat on Lifetime to herald in the worst Christmas ever.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Internet sensation with the wobbly walk, big blue eyes and frowny face will play a chronically overlooked pet store cat. The twist, according to the cable network, is the 12-year-old girl who can communicate with her.

The live-action movie is aptly named “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” and the human to voice the four-legged star has not yet been cast.

It will shoot this summer.

The script will be written by Tim Hill (SpongeBob SquarePants) and Jeff Morris, The Reporter said.

With her own agent, Grumpy’s YouTube videos have racked up millions of hits. She has T-shirts, calendars, gift wrap and a best-selling book available in 14 languages.

In real life, Grumpy is named Tardar Sauce and lives in Arizona.
