– Confirmation from Sandler is yet pending.

The much-anticipated sequel to a much-loved comedy is on the way. In recent news, Drew Barrymore, during an episode of “The Drew Barrymore Show,” confirmed that Adam Sandler is indeed working on the script for “Happy Gilmore 2”. This confirmation sticks with the claims made earlier by co-star Christopher McDonald in an interview with Audacy's 92.3 The Fan.

Sandler at Work

Barrymore excitedly relayed the news to her audience, saying, “I want it. I need it. And I stayed up last night with my daughter watching Billy Madison. I'll just say this, from my source, that it is in process.” The source being referred to here is likely Sandler himself. Sandler and Barrymore have remained close for years after starring together in three , “The ,” “50 First Dates,” and “Blended.”

A Blossoming Sequel

The “Happy Gilmore” sequel was first intimated to the public when Christopher McDonald, who played McGavin in the original comedy, revealed his recent conversation with Sandler. In it, Sandler had apparently shown McDonald the first draft of the script, much to the latter's delight. McDonald was excited about the but concerned about prematurely breaking the news. Nevertheless, the word is now out, and eagerly await further developments.

Returning Cast Members

If indeed “Happy Gilmore 2” is diligently at work under Sandler's penmanship, fans can look forward to the return of some of the beloved characters from the original film. Alongside McDonald, there's competent expectation that Julie Bowen and other members of the original cast will return. Unfortunately, several key players such as Frances Bay (Happy's Grandma) and Richard Kiel (Mr. Larson), have passed away since the release of the first movie. There's also the unforgettable character of Chubbs, played by Carl Weathers, whose demise in 2020 deeply shook the community.

It's hoped that Sandler will tender a fitting tribute to Weathers in the upcoming film. Though Weathers' character died in “Happy Gilmore,” he reappeared in a spectral form in the film's conclusion. There could be a similar thematic element highlighting Chubbs's character in the sequel.

Fans are eagerly waiting for Sandler's confirmation regarding “Happy Gilmore 2”. The prospect of teeing up for a sequel to the 1996 sports comedy is overwhelming.
