Carrie Keagan (Up Close With Carrie Keagan) has booked the female lead opposite Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter in Syfy’s boy-band zombie Western Dead 7, from Sharknado producer The Asylum.

Production is just getting underway on the telepic, also penned by Carter, which revolves around a ragtag group of gunslingers as they try to make their way in a postapocalyptic world. The twist to this world is that it’s just not barren and dangerous, it’s also filled with flesh-eating zombies. The gunslingers will find themselves stranded in a town and forced to make a choice on either to save the citizens of the town or save themselves. NSYNC’s Joey Fatone and Backstreet Boys’ A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough also star.

Keagan is repped by WME and Kleinberg Lange Cuddy & Carlo.
