Calling all '90s boyband fanatics! The Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC are teaming up to star in a "Sharknado-style Zombie Western."

No, you're not dreaming. This is real life.

These two beloved boybands are joining forces for the Syfy channel movie, "Dead 7." The film will be written and directed by Backstreet Boy blondie Nick Carter, who will also star alongside wife Lauren Kitt. Bandmate AJ McLean will join Carter, as will NSYNC's own Joey Fatone.

What exactly will this seemingly random movie be about, you ask?

"Dead 7" will be produced by The Asylum, the studio that brought us "Sharknado." You're welcome.

So this begs the question, would you watch the movie?
