Nope, this is no joke!
Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, 98 Degrees, and O-Town. Members from the boy bands that defined the era have all come together to do one thing – and that’s to kill some zombies.
Syfy’s new original movie, Dead 7, is scheduled to premiere on Friday, April 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT – and like we said – no joke!
Some of the biggest names from the boy bands are noticeably missing, but that shouldn’t put a damper on things. Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys wrote the script and is being distributed by Asylum, the same people responsible for Sharknado which also premiered on Syfy on July 11, 2013. Not surprisingly, he’s also the main hero in the film.
But who else is joining him to fight off zombies? Nick’s BSB group members A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough are joining him, NSYNC fans get to see Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick (sorry no Justin Timberlake sightings here), and all the current members of O-Town will be in the movie which include Erik-Michael Estrada, Trevor Penick, Dan Miller, and Jacob Underwood. On the other end of the spectrum, only Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees will be seen.
Check out the trailer, let us know what you think!
