Danny Trejo is moving in next door…
The 73-year-old Mexican American actor and Machete star has joined the cast of the comedy film The House Next Door, the sequel to Meet The Blacks, which has Mike Epps reprising his starring role. Deon Taylor is returning to direct.
Rick Ross and Katt Williams also star in the film along with returnees Bresha Webb, Zulay Henao, social media star Andrew Bachelor (a.k.a King Batch), and comedians Lil Duval, Michael Blackson and Tyrin Turner.
The project is currently shooting in Atlanta, Georgia.
It 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.
Meet The Blacks bowed in theaters in 2016 via Freestyle Releasing and grossed $9 million at the box office.
Trejo, who was recently seen on CW’s The Flash, is known for his collaborations with director Robert Rodriguez in films like From Dusk Till Dawn and Spy Kids.
