Dead 7 Reunites Boy Bands in Zombie Killing Western for SyFy

The Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync are going at it in a new zombie killing movie for the SyFy Channel. No, we aren’t making that up.

This may or may not interest you, depending on your affinity for older boy bands. But we’ll give it to you any way: SyFy will be airing a zombie-killing Western called Dead 7 starring the members of once popular boy bands ‘N Sync and The Backstreet Boys.

The kicker? It airs on April Fool’s Day at 8 p.m. Honestly, We aren’t making this up.

Starring Nick Carter, A.J. McLean, and Howie Dorough from The Backstreet Boys, and Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick from ‘N Sync, the film follows a group of young gunslingers who must join forces to rid a Western town of zombies. Carter stars as Jack, who has to convince the group to join up. He also wrote the script. Even former members of 98 Degrees and O-Town are in it.

Justin Timberlake will not be making an appearance, however.

I’m really not sure how to react to this one other than in disbelief, but there is the trailer and some stills, and April Fool’s has not arrived yet. So this really must be a thing. I’m going out on a limb here that this won’t be another Magnificent 7.
