Watch the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync take on zombies in Dead 7 trailer

Nick Carter, Joey Fatone and a few other boy band members from the 1990s have found a new job: killing zombies.

Various members from the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, 98 Degrees and O-Town have teamed up for SyFy's made-for-TV movie, Dead 7. In the film, the guys play a "ragtag team of gunslingers," according to the press release, who must defend a small town in the Wild West from a zombie invasion in a post-apocalyptic world. Carter will star in the movie as Jack, a reluctant hero who gets the band of outlaws together to fight the horde of undead in the first place.

The film will also star the aforementioned mentioned Fatone alongside Backstreet Boys A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough. 'N Sync's Chris Kirkpatrick, 98 Degrees' Jeff Timmons and O-Town's Erik-Michael Estrada have also signed on to the project.

Created in partnership with SyFy and the team that worked on the Sharknado series, Dead 7 will premiere on April 1 at 8 p.m. ET. Unfortunately, there's no word on whether the boys will sing.
