Many iconic films have come out of Hollywood North over the years, but Happy Gilmore is undoubtedly at the top. Filmed in Vancouver and locations across BC, the ’90s sports comedy was a huge box office success upon its release, garnering fans from across the globe. And after 28 years since its release, it looks like we’re finally getting a long-awaited sequel.

Directed by Dennis Dugan and starring Adam Sandler, Christopher McDonald, and Julie Bowen – the movie tells the story of a former hockey player taking his talents to golf to earn enough money to buy his grandmother’s house back.

In a radio interview with Christopher McDonald (AKA Shooter McGavin), the actor reveals that Sandler has apparently been working on a draft of Happy Gilmore 2which he showed to McDonald the last time the pair ran into each other.

“I saw Adam about two weeks ago, and he says to me, ‘McDonald, you’re gonna love this,’” McDonald shares in the interview. “I said, ‘What?’ He says, ‘How about that,’ and he shows me the first draft of Happy Gilmore 2.

This news follows the passing of acclaimed actor Carl Weathers just over a month ago, who played Chubbs in the original film. Though the sequel certainly won’t be the same without his iconic character, it will be interesting to see how production unfolds.
