Mike Epps & Katt Williams Team Up For New Film

Mike Epps and Katt Williams are joining forces in The House Next Door.

The film will serve as a sequel to the 2016 horror comedy, Meet The Blacks.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

Deon Taylor, who directed Blacks, is directing and producing with partners Roxanne Avent and Robert F. Smith. Epps is also producing via his Naptown Productions shingle.

Epps starred in Blacks and is reprising his role as Carl Black, who, in the original film, moved his family from Chicago to Beverly Hills only to find out it was the city’s annual 12-hour purge, a timeframe where all crime is legal.

In the new movie, which begins shooting next week in Atlanta, Black is now an over-stressed but best-selling author who moves his family to his childhood home so he can find peace to write his new book. But when an extravagant pimp (Williams) moves into the neighborhood, Black becomes convinced that the man is actually a vampire bent on stealing his family.

Original castmembers returning for the sequel include Bresha Webb, Zulay Henao, social media star Andrew Bachelor (aka King Bach), and comedians Lil Duval, Michael Blackson and Tyrin Turner.

Epps’ Naptown producing partner Niles Kirchner is executive producing, as is Williams.

Mike Epps is super excited about the project writing:

We bout to kill this sh-t the take over is real!!#meettheblacks2 #naptownfilms
