Nick told Buzzfeed: "Think about it. Boy-banders, people from the late '90s, people who you love, fighting zombies in a post-apocalyptic world. Pretty crazy, right?"

Those who follow Nick, 35, on social media will know he's a bit of an aspiring filmmaker and now he'll get the chance to show the world what he's got with this Syfy Channel horror movie named Dead 7.

Nick has written the screenplay and will direct, as well as starring alongside bandmate AJ McLean and Joey Fatone of 'N Sync.

His wife Lauren Kitt will also have a part.

Nick and his stars previewed the film at San Diego's Comic-Con and, according to Nick's official website, the gang will be teaming up with chief zombie slayer Nick. AJ plays the villain, Joey apparently plays a drunk and Lauren will take on the part of a bandit.

The movie is being made by the production company behind the Sharknado flicks, which have been massive successes for Syfy.

We can't wait!

Oh and as an FYI, the guys also told Buzzfeed that all that old school speculation of BSB v 'N Sync was totally contrived and actually there is no rivalry at all!
