Backstreet Boys and 'NSync to make zombie Western
Backstreet Boys and 'NSync are to collaborate on a zombie Western movie.
The American boybands were chart rivals in the late 1990s, but have officially buried the hatchet by agreeing to work on a new horror movie in partnership with the studio behind the 'Sharknado' franchise.
Backstreet Boy Nick Carter said: "It's a zombie Western futuristic horror movie.
"My character is still being worked out right now, but I'm a good guy that's going to help save the day."
Nick, 35, is set to write and star in the post-apocalyptic drama about a "ragtag band of gunslingers" fighting a zombie uprising, and he's revealed he's reaching out to a number of musicians to star in the movie.
He told Rolling Stone magazine: "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."
However, 'NSync's Joey Fatone has warned against expecting Justin Timberlake to make an appearance in the movie.
He said: "I'm the only NSYNC-er as of now, but you never know.
"Nick's vision is to bring some other people in that genre that have never really done a lot of film but that were in music in the Nineties and 2000s."
