Dead 7, Nick Carter, Twitter


"Larger than life!"

That's only one of many puns that can be made about the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync and 98 Degrees' new Syfy movie Dead 7. Syfy Australia debuted the TV movie's first poster on Twitter late Tuesday and BSB member Nick Carter retweeted it.

The poster shows Joey Fatone, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean, Carter and more gearing up for what looks to be the gun battle of their lives, which obviously will be "larger than life." Honestly, any crossover featuring BSB and 'N Sync would be epic, so we're only expecting good, if not ridiculous, fun from this movie.

"We know what you're thinking - if only we had a film that starred the members of BSB and NSYNC?" Syfy Australia tweeted. "We do. This June!"

Dead 7 is described as a "post-apocalyptic Western that follows a group of gunslingers as they look to rid a small town of a zombie plague." Carter is a triple threat in this movie, as he co-wrote, directs and stars in its. The film will debut in June 2016.

@skulleeroz and #debrawilson are absolute bad asses in our movie #dead7 #april1 @syfy @theasylumcc

The pop stars-turned-actors have been sharing behind-the-scenes pictures on their Instagrams, revealing some of the campy action that will hit the small screen all in due time. If these three boy bands weren't enough to get your '90s nostalgia on, Dead 7 will also feature O-Town's Trevor Penick and Jacob Underwood.

Last summer Carter talked to E! News about how excited he was to get this project together. "I wanted my friends in the film with me. What is more fun than riding horses and being zombies shooting things? Even as a kid I loved horror films, this was always something I wanted to do," he told us.

"Friends," you say? We always assumed BSB and 'N Sync were forever embroiled in a boy band battle! "We've been friends for a long time," he continued. "I knew this would be a fun thing for us to do."

It will definitely be the '90s and early 2000s reunion of a lifetime.

(E! and Syfy are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
