Hit 1990s boy-band Backstreet Boys are set to star in a documentary about their meteoric rise to fame.
The members will open up about their time in the pop group for an upcoming tell-all film, to be directed by Stephen Kijak. The project is expected to be completed later this year to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the group's formation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A statement from the Backstreet Boys reads, "We always wanted to make a film and now is the ideal time. With ... a new album in the works and our 20th anniversary -- it all adds up to being the right time to share our story."
Kijak adds, "What drew me to this project is their openness and willingness to push themselves into uncomfortable places, to be vulnerable and honest and to be really trusting of the filmmaking team to steer them in the right direction. BSB is getting real and it has been exciting to work with them as they explore their past and start to look towards their futures."
