Although it may have seemed like a fever dream last summer when Syfy announced a futuristic zombie Western written by Nick Carter and starring member of a cross-section of 1990s boy bands, it is indeed real. And there's a trailer to prove it.
Produced by The Asylum, the studio behind the unstoppable "Sharknado" franchise, "Dead 7" stars Carter, A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough from Backstreet Boys, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirpatrick from NSYNC, Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees, and Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick, Dan Miller and Erik-Michael Estrasa from O-Town. As post-apocalyptic cowboys (and one samurai). Fighting zombies.
As with much of The Asylum's output, "Dead 7" doesn't take itself too seriously, because ... how could it?
"Dead 7" premieres April 1 on Syfy.
