Move Over 'Sharknado,' the Backstreet Boys and 'NSync Are Making a Zombie Apocalypse Movie

Jul 20, 2015

It has never been easier to be a bad movie and still have people excited to watch you. The Asylum has perfected this business model, churning out no-budget hits again and again, with the Sharknado franchise being a jewel in their poorly rendered CGI crown.

It doesn't matter to them if the effects are garbage and that people are only watching Asylum movies to make fun of them on social media. It doesn't matter if people watch their movies ironically, as long as they bump up the ratings. And as the Sharknado franchise proves, combine once big pop culture icons with some nonsense plot and the audience will show up in record numbers. 

And so now The Asylum is planning a zombie apocalypse movie featuring members of '90s sensations the Backstreet Boys and 'Nsync, with potential cameos from every other '90s boy band. Not only that, but Backstreet Boy Nick Carter is actually writing the movie, which he calls a "zombie Western futuristic horror movie." As of right now it's titled Dead 7, but we're guessing that name will get something a lot catchier (and cheesier) in due time.

As of today, Carter and his fellow Backstreet Boys Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean are set to star alongside 'NSync's Joey Fatone. Carter's plan is to next rope in New Kids on the Block hunk Jordan Knight, and continue netting more cameos from other friends. Obviously his white whale must be former 'NSync frontman Justin Timberlake, but considering what kind of movies Timberlake is making these days, you're probably not going to want to hold your breath for that to happen.

Dead 7 doesn't have a finished script at this point, so it may be a bit until it comes out. To bide your time, just watch Joey Fatone's ridiculous cameo in the actually funny Jersey Shore Shark Attack below.
