Amazingly, a new SyFy original film about zombies in the post-apocalyptic West will feature ‘90s boy bands not as the zombies, but as the zombie-killers.
Dead 7, whose trailer you can watch here, combines members of the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, 98 Degrees, and O-Town (yeah, we forgot those last two existed, too) to form a cast that probably would’ve been unaffordable 15 years ago. Nick Carter is the mastermind behind the project, co-producing with production company The Asylum, writing the story, and playing the lead role. Other living relics you’ll see in the film include the Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean and Howie Dorough, NSYNC’s Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons, and O-Town’s Erik-Michael Estrada, Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick, and Dan Miller.
Dead 7 premieres on SyFy on Apr. 1 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.
