Re: The Adam Sandler / Happy Madison / Netflix Thread

A sequel to classic Adam Sandler comedy Happy Gilmore may be in the making, as a first draft of the script has already been written, according to actor Christopher McDonald, a cast member of the original film.

“I saw Adam about two weeks ago, and he says to me, ‘McDonald, you’re gonna love this,'” the actor shared in an interview on Audacy’s 92.3 The Fan. “I said, ‘What?’ He says, ‘How about that,’ and he shows me the first draft of Happy Gilmore 2.”

McDonald suggested that his comments should perhaps be “cut” from the interview, “because I don’t want to be a liar.” Still, he said, “he did show me that [script], and I thought, ‘Well, that would be awesome.’ So, it’s in the works. Fans demand it, dammit!”

Sources say the project will be for Netflix, where Sandler and Happy Madison have long had a deal, though the streamer is declining comment. Reps for Sandler also had no comment.

One of Sandler’s most popular films — and one of two, along with Billy Madison, that gives its name to his production company, Happy Madison — Happy Gilmore follows Sandler’s failed hockey player of the same name, with a powerful slapshot and a volatile temper. When Happy’s grandmother, who raised him, is threatened with eviction from her home due to unpaid taxes, Happy discovers that he has a natural talent for golf, specifically driving the ball incredible distances.

With the help of a retired golf pro named Chubbs Peterson, played by the late Carl Weathers, he decides to join the PGA Tour to win enough money to save his grandmother’s house. However, Happy’s unorthodox and aggressive playing style clashes with the traditional etiquette of golf, making him unpopular with PGA officials and other players like McDonald’s Shooter McGavin, a smug and arrogant golfer who sees Happy as a threat to his own career aspirations.

Released by Universal Pictures in 1996, the film directed by Dennis Dugan grossed over $82 million worldwide and retains a cult following to this day. Sandler and Tim Herlihy wrote the pic, also starring Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen, among others.

Stay tuned for more information on the potential project.

Too bad Roger Ebert isn't around to review a potential Deuce Bigelow 3:

That review is highly entertaining. Almost makes me want to watch the movie.
