“McDonald, you're gonna love this,” the 69-year-old actor conveyed what Sandler had said to him before showing him the first draft of the said sequel when they met up about two weeks ago. Although he wanted the listeners to take it all with a grain of salt because he didn't want to be branded a liar, McDonald was positive that the movie 30 years in the making was finally happening. “Fans demand it, dammit!” exclaimed the Shooter McGavin actor.

About the Happy Gilmore movie

The 1996 has gained a cult following over the years, becoming one of Sandler's most iconic films. His production company's name was coined as a portmanteau of Happy Gilmore and his other film, Billy Madison.

Starring Christopher McDonald as the infamous Shooter McGavin, a golf star full of himself, the movie also features Modern Family's Julie Bown, the late Carl Weathers, Frances Bay, and the late Bob Park's cameo. The Universal Pictures feature, directed by Dennis Dugan, revolves around the titular wannabe hockey player with a flaming temper. On discovering his latent natural talent for golf, Gilmore joins the PGA Tour to help save his grandmother's house, as she's threatened with eviction. Happy's unconventional play becomes the talk of the town, but for all the wrong reasons among the officials. Arrogant star golfer McGavin, who views him as a threat to his stardom, takes charge as the antagonist.
