Late-’90s boy bands are coming back from the dead to make a movie together.

Backstreet Boy Nick Carter is writing, directing and starring in Dead Seven, a Western zombie movie that will also star his bandmate A.J. McLean and ‘N Sync’s Joey Fatone. The trio announced the movie, which will air on SyFy, at Comic-Con over the weekend.

Buzzfeed reports that the team behind the epic of our time, Sharknado, will be working with Carter to execute his vision — so his dreams are in good hands. Carter and Fatone will be playing good guys, while token bad boy McLean will play a villain’s apprentice.

Fatone told Buzzfeed that teaming up for the movie was “therapy” for the guys, and that the rivalry between the bands was all contrived by the media.

There’s no word on whether Justin Timberlake will have any involvement in the project, which is a shame — the singer/actor knows a thing or two about survival.
