Friday After Next co-stars Mike Epps and Katt Williams are set to reunite for the urban comedy The House Next Door, a sequel to Deon Taylor’s 2016 hit comedy Meet the Blacks.
The House Next Door is once again being directed by Taylor and will see Bresha Webb, Zulay Henao, Andrew Bachelor, Lil Duval, Michael Blackson and Tyrin Turner reprising their roles from the original movie.
“Mike and Katt are so comedically explosive together,” said Taylor. “I don’t know how we’re going to keep it together on set with these two at the top of their game, but we’re happy to have this as our problem to deal with! Audiences really responded to Meet the Blacks so we’re happy to give them another dose of dysfunction with House Next Door.”
The synopsis for The House Next Door reads:
After surviving a night of terror and becoming a best-selling author, overstressed Carl Black (Epps) moves his family back to his childhood home where he hopes to work in peace and quiet on a new book that he owes his publisher. But when his quirky neighborhood becomes host to a mysteriously extravagant pimp (Williams), Carl’s work is interrupted after his dead-beat cousin becomes convinced the new neighbor is actually a vampire and is trying to steal Carl’s entire family away. Carl is forced to team up with an oddball cast of neighborhood characters as they take the fight to the vampire pimp in a hilarious battle for Carl’s family… and the future of his old hood.
Filming on The House Next Door is set to get underway this coming week in Atlanta, Georgia.
