(USA Today) -- The Arizona sourpuss who has become a major Web celeb will soon be hitting the big screen.

Grumpy Cat's reps (manager Ben Lashes and rep Al Hassas) are teaming with Broken Road production company's Todd Garner and Sean Robins "to produce and assemble a package for a Garfield-like feature film," reports
Grumpy Cat, who will star, will speak in the movie. Will Ferrell and Jack Black are attached to appear in the film, too.

"We think we can build a big family comedy around this character," Garner told Deadline.

But first, the famous cat is heading to New York this week to promote her new book, Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book: Disgruntled Tips and Activities Designed to Put a Frown on Your Face at BookExpo America, the publishing industry convention.
