It’s the '90s all over again! The Backstreet Boys are back in a big way.
The band, who is celebrating their 20th year anniversary in 2013, according to The Huffington Post UK, is releasing their first documentary.
The film will document the best selling boy band’s rise to fame and the transition from boyband to manband.
Backstreet released a statement Monday morning saying, “We always wanted to make a film and now is the ideal time - with Kevin back, the fact that we are masters of our own destiny, a new album in the works and our 20th anniversary all adds up to being the right time to share our story."
The Hollywood Reporter reported that the movie length documentary will be made by US and UK production company, Pulse Films, and will be directed by Stephen Kijak.
Kijak stated that this won’t be a 3-D fluff film about boybands but a tell all about all five original members.
Backstreet Boys have sold a worldwide record of 130 million albums to date, putting them in the top 30 best selling artists of all time.
The film is set to be completed by Fall 2013.
