This year’s San Diego Comic Con brought an awful lot excitement, as it does every year. With all the fuss about Jared Leto and his fellow villains there’s a chance you may have missed something more important.

Two of our favourite boybands are getting together and making dreams come true! NSync and the Backstreet Boys are actually working together again. Even better news: our favourite One Direction member and Mullingar native Niall Horan might join in the fun.

Nick Carter announced that his fellow Backstreet Boy buddy A.J McLean and Joey Fatone of ‘N Sync would be starring in his new film Dead 7.

We thought the boys hated each other? Was there not a boy band rivalry going on for all these years? Apparently not according to Nick: "We've been friends for a long time."

He continued "I wanted my friends in the film with me. What is more fun than riding horses and being zombies shooting things?”

We can think of a few things. 

We might be forced to change our tune if Nick’s dream comes true. Not only does the boy band alum want to make movies with his singing and dancing pals, he has his eyes on a certain One Direction member to join the cast.

Only days ago he tweeted Niall to ask him about joining the project. Nick thinks Niall would be the best person to play his brother. The pair manage to get themselves in a love triangle, naturally.

Hilary Duff, yes his brother’s ex-girlfriend, is who Nick has pictured to play the lady at the centre of the brother’s spat. Niall has yet to respond to the request, but we think this sounds like a great idea. Bizarre, but also really great.

Can you imagine the soundtrack?
