Adam Sandler Teases 'Happy Gilmore 2' Script: Sequel in the Works?

Adam Sandler fans, rejoice! It seems like the beloved comedy "Happy Gilmore" might just be getting a sequel. Christopher McDonald, the actor who played the iconic villain Shooter McGavin in the original film, recently spilled the beans during a radio show appearance. He mentioned that Adam Sandler himself showed him a draft of the script for "Happy Gilmore 2." Can you believe it?

McDonald shared his excitement, saying, "He shows me the first draft of Happy Gilmore 2. He did show me that, and I thought, 'Wow, that would be awesome.'" If McDonald's reaction is anything to go by, it sounds like we're in for a treat.

For those who need a quick refresher, "Happy Gilmore" follows the story of a failed hockey player, played by Sandler, who discovers a talent for golf. With his unconventional approach and powerful swing, he becomes an unexpected sensation in the golfing world. Alongside memorable characters like Shooter McGavin and mentor Chubbs, played by the late Carl Weathers, the film became a beloved classic.

The original "Happy Gilmore," released in 1996, was a box office success, grossing $41 million globally. That's equivalent to a whopping $81 million in today's money! Fans have been holding out hope for a sequel for years, and it seems like their wishes might finally be coming true.

But hold your golf clubs for a moment. This isn't the first time rumors of a sequel have surfaced. Back in 2015, director Dennis Dugan expressed skepticism about the possibility of a follow-up. He said, "I can’t imagine [Sandler] ever do that, but it’s Hollywood, so you never say that’ll never happen." However, it looks like things might have changed since then.

With Adam Sandler's renewed deal with Netflix and his recent projects for the streaming giant, including "Murder Mystery 2" and "You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah," it's clear that he's keeping busy. Could a "Happy Gilmore" sequel be next on his list?

While Netflix has declined to comment on the rumors, fans can't help but speculate about what a sequel might entail. Will we see Happy Gilmore returning to the golf course for another hilarious adventure? And what about Shooter McGavin? Will he make a comeback to challenge Happy once again?

It's worth noting that Carl Weathers, who portrayed Chubbs, sadly passed away last month at the age of 76. His presence in the original film added a lot of heart and humor, and he'll be dearly missed if a sequel does come to fruition. But perhaps the filmmakers will find a fitting way to honor his memory in the new installment.

As for Adam Sandler, he's proven time and time again that he knows how to deliver laughs. Whether he's playing a hockey player turned golfer or a bumbling detective in a murder mystery, Sandler's comedic chops are undeniable. Fans can't wait to see what he has in store for "Happy Gilmore 2."

So, what do you think? Are you excited about the prospect of a "Happy Gilmore" sequel, or do you think some classics are better left untouched? Either way, it's clear that Adam Sandler and his team have something special in the works. Keep an eye out for updates, and in the meantime, why not revisit the original film for a trip down memory lane? After all, "the price is wrong, Bob!"
