Hey, can't blame a guy for trying.
Nick's aiming high too – he wants Niall to play his brother in the zombie flick. You know, a kind of old school meets modern day boybander collab? Do it, Niall.
Here's the thing...this movie is actually happening, with Backstreet Boys and NSYNC teaming up for Syfy channel's Dead 7, written and directed by Nick. Backstreet Boys' AJ McLean and NSYNC's Joey Fatone are also on board.
How bad could it be? This smells like guilty pleasure all the way (you know, Sharknado territory), tbh.
Nick tweeted to Niall over the weekend: "Ok @NiallOfficial I know we're from different generations but...would you like to play my brother in this zombie movie with me?"
Nick also took to Twitter to recruit the Spice Girls' Mel B and Paul McCartney.
