Adam Sandler is working on ‘Happy Gilmore’ sequel

Adam Sandler is working on ‘Happy Gilmore’ sequel

It has to be better than that “other” golf movie sequel, right?

The most iconic golf movie ever, “Caddyshack,” was followed up by the horrific “Caddyshack II,” so here’s hoping “Happy Gilmore 2” does right by the original.

Christopher McDonald, the actor who portrayed Happy’s nemesis Shooter McGavin in the 1996 release Happy Gilmore, spilled the beans about the follow-up when he joined Ken Carman on 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland.

“Here’s a quick intel,” McDonald said. “I saw Adam [Sandler] about two weeks ago and he says to me ‘McDonald. You’re going to love this.’ I said ‘What?’ And he says ‘How about that?’ and he shows me a first draft of Happy Gilmore 2.”

He then joked that maybe the radio producers should cut that out of the interview because “I don’t want to be a liar,” he said, but added that Sandler “did show me that and I said that would be awesome. It’s in the works. Fans demand it.”

McDonald is active in pro-am and charity tournaments and said his handicap is “probably 12 or 13 but I used to be about a 7.”

Where does he rank the Shooter McGavin role?

“I’ve had some favorite roles. I gotta say it’s top 3.”

“You’re a beloved character,” said Carman.

“People loved to hate the Shooter. I love that.,” McDonald said.

McDonald was in Cleveland for a meet-and-greet at the minor league hockey Cleveland Monsters, where the fan giveaway is a Shooter McGavin bobblehead.

There is no announced release date for “Happy Gilmore 2.”
