Backstreet Boys Making a Documentary

Hit 1990’s band Backstreet Boys are set to star in a documentary about their meteoric rise to fame.

The I Want It That Way hitmakers will open up about their time in the pop band for the upcoming tell-all film, to be directed by moviemaker 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.”

Donnie Wahlberg will be working overtime in the run-up to his summer (11) tour with reunited boyband New Kids On The Block, because he refuses to take a break from his acting gig on new crime series Blue Bloods.

The singer/actor, 41, stars as Detective Danny Reagan on the cop show and the program, which premiered in September (10), has proved to be a critical success.

Wahlberg admits he’s keen to focus more on his screen career as he grows older – so he will be working double duty as he juggles his TV responsibilities with rehearsals for his band’s upcoming joint concerts with the Backstreet Boys.

He tells TV Guide magazine, “I made a strategic choice when I decided to do Blue Bloods to shift the balance to acting.

“(So) I’ll wrap Blue Bloods at 8pm, then go to a studio to start preparing the (NKOTB) show till 3 or 4am. I want to do it all now, while I still can!”
