Pearlman was famous for starting and managing the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, LFO, O-Town, and others. He died in 2016 from a heart attack while serving a 25-year prison sentence.
The film will be based partly on a 2007 Vanity Fair article about Pearlman. Songwriters Desmond Child and Andreas Carlsson have signed on as producers. Carlsson helped write the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want it That Way” and *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye."
The Boy Band Con, a documentary about Pearlman produced by *NSYNC member Lance Bass, premiered earlier this year.
Hope the casting for this will be better than that budget Lifetime Britney movie.
