EXCLUSIVE: Backstreet Boys dish on Cher and Miley Cyrus joining new film, working together and BSB/*NSYNC cruise – exclusive by Leena Tailor (Twitter: @LeenaNZ)

Cher and Miley Cyrus are the latest pop-stars tapped to joined Backstreet Boy Nick Carter’s zombie horror “Dead 7?.

In what’s shaping up to be the so-bizarre-it’s-hilarious TV flick of 2016, Nick and wife Lauren’s team are in talks with reps of both artists to join the crowd-funded film.

“There’s a possibility that Cher could be in the movie as the main villain,” Lauren tells Moviehole. “It’s not for sure but there’s talk. Miley Cyrus we’re reaching out to as well.”

Being produced by The Asylum (the guys who brought us Sharknado and Z Nation), the movie will commence filming in Los Angeles, and possibly Alaska, next month and Cher and Miley would join an ever-growing celebrity roll call.

With bandmates AJ McLean and Howie Dorough and actor Devon Sawa already signed up, Nick is also dispelling ancient boy band myths by hiring Joey Fatone from *NSYNC.

“The wish-list of people I want is music-based and I want it to be a unique mix,” says Nick, who has also reached out via Twitter to Sisqó, One Direction’s Niall Horan and his favourite Spice Girl Mel B.

The former Backstreet Boys and NSYNC boy banders are teaming up to make a zombie horror Western movie together, with Nick Carter at the helm. And the three just seem to be having so much fun with it — their excitement is contagious. They were all for talking about their rumored rivalry back in the ’90s, awkwardly saying hi to one another at the MTV Movie Awards, and proving they can still nail those harmonies. “Think about it,” Nick said. “Boy banders, people from the late ’90s who you love, fighting zombies in a postapocalyptic world. Pretty crazy, right?” Definitely, but also really fun. —KF
