BSB’s Nick Carter to direct and star in zombie film
What would happen when our favourite boy bands collide? They would come together in a post-apocalyptic zombie movie!
No seriously! Nick Carter from Backstreet Boys is writing and directing a film called “Dead 7” which will also feature himself, and he is recruiting fellow BSB member AJ McLean as well as NSYNC’s Joey Fatone to join in him in the movie!
That’s not all, he is also trying to get Niall Horan from One Direction to play his younger brother in the movie! (Funny he didn’t ask his real brother Aaron Carter to play the part)
“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,” said Carter quoted by E! News.Ok @NiallOfficial I know we're from different generations but...would you like to play my brother in this zombie movie with me? #Dead7— Nick Carter (@nickcarter) July 13, 2015
The film will be produced by The Asylum, the studio that brought us the ‘jaws-omely’ weird disaster film, “Sharknado”.
Horan is not the only person that Carter personally reached through Twitter, the singer also Tweeted Scary Spice Mel B (Melanie Brown) from Spice Girls, Paul McCartney from The Beatles and the lead singer of hip hop soul group Dru Hill, Sisqó.

“Dead 7” is the story of a ragtag band of gunslingers who must rid a small town of a zombie plague in a post-apocalyptic West,” according to Asylum press release obtained by Entertainment Weekly. “Carter will play Jack, the reluctant hero who unites the outlaws to face the zombie menace.”
