Happy Gilmore star Christopher McDonald said he’s seen a script for a sequel to Adam Sandler’s popular golf comedy. Brace yourselves for Happy Gilmore 2…

Of all the comedy films Adam Sandler made in the 1990s, few are as beloved as Happy Gimore. Directed by regular collaborator Denis Dugan and written by Sandler and Tim Herlihy, the film followed Sandler as the titular character, an aspiring ice hockey player who enters a high-profile golfing tournament to earn money to buy his grandmother’s house. Though his angry outbursts and profane patter initially cause outrage, his skill and tenacity eventually win through in the end.

Featuring memorable supporting turns from the much missed Carl Weathers, the imposing Richard Kiel, also known as Jaws from the James Bond films The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, and a violent clash with genial game show host Bob Barker, the film also saw Christopher McDonald play Gilmore’s nemesis Shooter McGavin.

McDonald was recently interviewed by Audacy’s 92.3 The Fan (via Deadline), during which he revealed that he had seen the script for Happy Gilmore 2. McDonald said, “I saw Adam about two weeks ago, and he says to me, ‘McDonald, you’re gonna love this’. I said, ‘What?’ He says, ‘How about that?’ and he shows me the first draft of Happy Gilmore 2“.

McDonald was quick to stress that nothing is official, and there has been no announcement that the film is in development.

Sandler’s most recent film was the introspective drama Spaceman, which is now streaming on Netflix. He last collaborated with Herlihy on the script for 2020 comedy Hubie Halloween, which is also streaming on Netflix. He will next be seen in Noah Baumbach’s untitled coming of age drama alongside Emily Mortimer, who co-wrote the script with Baumbach, George Clooney, Laura Dern, Billy Crudup and Riley Keough.
