Netflix making Happy Gilmore 2

Sequel to ’90s golf comedy to be produced for streamer

Adam Sandler has confirmed rumors that a sequel to ’90s comedy Happy Gilmore is in the works.

During a recent appearance on the Dan Patrick Show, the Grown Ups star said “We’re working on it. Me and Tim Herlihy are diligently trying to make a good reason for everyone to come and watch and have a good time. Netflix is excited about it. So, we’re working on it. We’ve got some good ideas. You’re definitely in it.” He adds, “We’ve been jamming; we have a million ideas already. We just gotta make it a movie and make sure we’re excited about people enjoying it. It’s important; we love Happy, we don’t want to let anybody down. People have talked about this for many years… We’re going to work hard and make sure it’s good.”

Christopher McDonald, who played Shooter McGavin in the original film, recently confirmed he’d spoken to Sandler about the film – suggesting his villainous character will make a reprise.
