You’re going to love everything about the next sentence you read. It looks like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator and star Rachel Bloom is going to write the *NSYNC superfan movie. If you recall, the *NSYNC movie was first announced back in February. At the time, we reported *NSYNC alum Lance Bass would serve as a producer — a perfect decision, to be honest.
On Thursday, Variety reported Bloom will pen the script for the *NSYNC superfan movie (an official title is still TBD). Additionally, the movie has been scooped up by Sony Pictures’ label Tristar. The movie is based on an idea from Bass and tells the story of actual best friends Meredith Sandberg and Winter Byington, who spent a summer following *NSYNC on their last world tour using money they won on The Price Is Right. Part road trip movie, part musical comedy in the vein of Pitch Perfect, this movie should be at the top of every Millennial’s must-see list right now. As for Bloom, well, it sure sounds like she’s thrilled to be writing the movie based on her statement: “I’m so excited to work on this road trip musical that will explore the nature of early 2000’s nostalgia and if the past was, indeed, actually better. Also, I GET TO WORK WITH LANCE BASS!”
We’ll keep you posted as this *NSYNC movie develops.
