The Asylum has really shocked a lot of horror fans over the years but to have Nick Carter from Backstreet Boys not only act in their new zombie movie but also direct the film, wow! The Asylum has a great track record so I am not surprised in a bad way yet, just shocked. The new zombie film is titled Dead West and even though they are at very early stages of the movie, what an announcement. We will post more as news develops.
Synopsis: a gang of bandits from the wild west, who try to rob a bank and soon find themselves in the fight of their lives against a town full of zombies.
Nick Carter had this to say:
Actor, director, writer. I’m getting ready to do a deal with a movie company called Asylum, so I’m getting ready to do cool stuff on my own. It’s called Dead West. [laughs.] It’s a zombie horror western movie. It’s a hybrid movie. I created the story, co-wrote the story with a writer, and just did our meeting last week with Asylum. They’re the same people that did Sharknado, so it’s definitely a B-movie, but with this movie it’s something I wrote from my creative brain. Now they’re coming in, and we’re going to partner together, and we’re going to shoot the movie in March. I’m acting in it and possibly bringing in some friends of mine. It’s pretty insane, I’ll tell you, and we’re really, really excited. I’m passionate about this, and I enjoy being artistic in a sort of quirky way that’s unusual. That’s why I’m putting together the cast; there’s some names floating around like Joey Fatone from N*SYNC or an old buddy of mine Shaquille O’Neal. Just an out of the box thing.
