The Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees will be reunited… in a documentary. A film returning to the era when boy bands were at the top of the charts is in preparation at Paramount, revealed American media, including The Rolling Stone.
Without an official title at this time, the project will be directed by Tamra Davis (Billy Madison) and produced by Johnny Wright, who was the manager of many pop stars of the 1990s and 2000s, including Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC.
The documentary, whose release date has not been revealed, will include new interviews with band members as well as archival concert footage and interviews.
This announcement comes days after the release of a first song in 20 years for the group NSYNC and the start of a new US tour for 98 Degrees.
While in Montreal last week to promote the show he hosts, The Fashion Hero: A New Kind of Beautiful, AJ McLean of the Basckstreet Boys also told La Presse that the group planned to work on a new album after a “well-deserved break.”
