Rick Ross Returns To Hollywood; Set To Star Alongside Mike Epps In ‘The House Next Door’
After making his film debut in 2008’s Days of Wrath, Rick Ross is heading back to the big screen and will star alongside Mike Epps in the upcoming comedy The House Next Door.
A sequel to 2016’s Meet the Blacks, Rozay will join a cast that features Danny Trejo, Katt Williams, Zulay Henao, King Bach, Lil Duval, Michael Blackson and Tyrin Turner, Deadline reports.
The film will follow Carl Black (Epps), who, after surviving a night of terror and becoming a best-selling author, moves his family back to his childhood home. While attempting to work on a new book, Black’s neighborhood welcomes a pimp played by Katt Williams. Carl’s work becomes interrupted after his cousin believes the pimp is actually a vampire who is trying to steal Carl’s family away.
Ross has also previously appeared in Ride Along 2 and the TV series Magic City. It’s uncertain what role the rapper will have in The House Next Door.
In related Rozay news, the Rather You Than Me rapper has continued his feud with Birdman over what he claims is a mistreatment of Lil Wayne’s finances. In a Snapchat video posted in October, Ross said, “It just ran across my mind. And I said, ‘Damn, I wonder if Birdman paid that man yet?’ Pay that man. Pay that man.” The rapper also posted the hashtag “#PAYDATMAN” on his video.
The House Next Door doesn’t have a release date yet but is currently shooting in Atlanta.
