Members of the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC are at last putting aside the differences that made them not quite the exact same band. According to Rolling Stone, Backstreet Adult Men Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, and A.J. McLean, and NSYNCer-turned-Family Feud announcer Joey Fatone are teaming up to star in a movie that, like Lance Bass's unrealized spaceflight plans, will tell of a fictional, futuristic and terrible world.
The title is Dead 7, and it's described a post-apocalyptic Western that sees a "ragtag band of gunslingers" fighting off zombies. Carter is also writing the film and is personally reaching out to other faded boy band members to fill out his gunslinging crew, explaining, "There's a wish list of people that I want. I want it to be musically based. I might reach out to Jordan [Knight] from the New Kids on the Block." Predictably, the film is being produced by Sharknado-makers The Asylum, the low-budget production company responsible for so many a willfully-stupid B-movie. The day has at last arrived that NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys have become the new Mega Shark and Crocosaurus.
