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.

S Club 7 -- a British pop group created by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller and consisting of members Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens -- rose to international fame in 2000, before splitting in 2003. In March 2012, it was announced that all original seven members would reunite for seven UK shows, with possibility of a two-album record deal.
Unlike almost all of the other 90s boy bands, the Backstreet Boys never really broke up -- although original member Kevin Richardson did quit in 2006. In 2011, the Backstreet Boys toured with New Kids on the Block, and BSB is planning to release a new album in 2012.
After reuniting in 2008, New Kids On The Block embarked on a highly successful reunion tour. Then in 2011, they joined The Backstreet Boys for the NKOTBSB tour and released a compilation album of the same name, featuring their hits "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" and "Hangin' Tough," and a new recording, "Don't Turn Out the Lights."
Take That formed in 1990 and after a few No. 1 UK singles, the British boy band split in 1996. However, the group reunited in 2005 and have been touring and releasing new music ever since. The band's next album is expected to hit shelves in late 2012, and Take That is also in talks to open the London 2012 Olympic Games.
After reuniting in 2007 for a Spice Girls reunion tour, the British girl power group may reunite again for Queen Elizabeth's upcoming Diamond Jubilee in June. Scary, Baby, Sporty, Ginger and Posh may also don their platform boots for the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer.
