Rick Ross has been cast in the upcoming Mike Epps-starring comedy The House Next Door. The film is a sequel to the 2016 comedy-horror film Meet The Blacks, which also starred Epps and was a parody of the 2013 horror hit The Purge. Ross has signed on alongside Machete‘s Danny Trejo, though there are no details on the character he will portray. Katt Williams will also join the cast, while Bresha Webb, Zulay Henao, Andrew Bachelor, Lil Duval, Michael Blackson and Tyrin Turner will return.
According to Deadline, the film “centers on overstressed Carl Black (Epps) who, after surviving a night of terror and becoming a best-selling author, moves his family back to his childhood home where he hopes to work on a new book. But when his quirky neighborhood becomes host to a mysteriously extravagant pimp (Williams), Carl’s work is interrupted as his cousin becomes convinced the new neighbor is a vampire and is trying to steal Carl’s entire family away.”
