Good news for BSB fans -- the Backstreet Boys are getting a documentary.

The '90s boy band, made up of Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, A. J. McLean, and Kevin Richardson, is the subject of an upcoming film from director Stephen Kijak. The documentary will focus on the band's rise to superstardom and continued success as a group.

"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 band said in a statement.

"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," Kijak said, THR reports. Kijak recently directed "Stones in Exile," a documentary about the Rolling Stones.

Kijak added, "After making a film with The Rolling Stones, what does one do to top that experience? Backstreet Boys, that's what!"

THR reports that "Backstreet Boys - The Movie" is set for a theatrical release and should be completed by this fall.
