Backstreet Boys and *N Sync are making a movie together…


Well, not quite.

Studio behind Sharknado will produce the film, written by Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, and starring two more Backstreet Boys and Joey Fatone from *N Sync


The bands are partnering with the Asylum, the studio behind the hit SyFy franchise Sharknado, to make what Backstreet member Nick Carter described to Rolling Stone as “a zombie western futuristic horror movie”. Carter said he’s slated to play the “good guy that’s going to help save the day”, and will also write the project, tentatively titled Dead 7.


And also:

Fellow Backstreet members Howie Dorough and AJ McLean have agreed to star.

So…three fifths of the Backstreet Boys and one member of N’Sync (remembered for not really mastering the synchronised moves sufficiently AND being replaced by some random person in one of their videos) are making a movie together.


with McLean playing the film’s main villain.

Now that makes some sense.

Carter told Rolling Stone that he hopes to cast other musicians in key roles, including Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block.

Oh dear. I still haven’t recovered from their Nickel & Knight collab…

The film is the first project to bring Backstreet and *N Sync together. “We’ve never done anything together collectively,” Fatone told Rolling Stone. “People always think [we’re] some sort of rivals. But it’s so funny – there’s never been animosity or anything like that.”

Just admit that you need the money, Joey. It’s okay. I would also sign up to do this movie for money. It would literally be the only reason why I would willingly feature in it.

Dead 7 marks Carter’s first project as a screenwriter.

And hopefully the last, because his last script was called Evil Blessings and somehow, Dead 7 sounds even worse than that did.

I’ll probably watch it when it’s released though, because I have a weak spot for Nick Carter and mocking things relentlessly.

  1. Wow. I wonder if it’s a coincidence that this has been announced and now the Joey Fatone/Lance Bass movie from 2002ish has suddenly appeared more than a few times on a low grade sub channel called Laff. Lance Bass chasing after the girl who played Lorelei on The Mentalist, with the help of Joey Fatone. Why would anyone want to remind the public such a thing existed? Maybe just to say “Hey at least it’s not From Justin to Kelly!”
    Anyway this new movie sounds hilariously awful but people need work/money and if some idiot is willing to finance this thing then good for the “actors” and crew members. I’m more likely to watch this than Sharknado.
    And hooray for both of the GIFs 🙂


    1. First of all, Sharknado is a classic. The entire franchise is iconic. Lol!

      Lance Bass chasing after a girl…well, I guess it was 2002. I always wonder how he and her know each other lol! I remember they did some dress up charity run together. And he was being nice in getting Joey cast too. Lmao. Joey was also in Jersey Shore Shark Attack, I believe, so…clearly he’s all about getting those coins. This movie sounds like a hot mess. Nick has cast his wife too, who has the stage presence of wood. She was very bland on their reality show.

      Ah well, I’m sure I will enjoy mocking it! 🙂
