Note: Please do not put "Rodney Dangerfield died in 2004.", because this was before he died.

The original version of Caddyshack II was originally going to have Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray return as Ty Webb, Al Czervik, and Carl Spackler. Before production began, it was apparently going to be directed by Alan Metter of Back to School fame and was written by original writer Harold Ramis and was co-written by Peter Torekvei.

Plot[]

The plot would have been the same as the current version, but with Al Cvervik taking over Bushwood Country Club instead of Jack Hartounian

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray refused to return for the film.
  2. Alan Metter was fired from production.

Results[]

  • Alan Metter was fired from production after Rodney Dangerfield backed out of the project and thus Ramis' script was changed.
  • After Metter was fired, direction was given to Allan Arkush.
  • In 1988, Warner Brothers released Caddyshack II with an entirely different cast as cardboard cutouts (including Dan Aykroyd as Captain Tom Everett, a character similar to Carl Spackler). The film was panned by critics, audiences and fans alike and bombed hard at the box office. The only original cast member to return was Chevy Chase.
