Sure, the Backstreet Boys may sing "Larger than Life," but come this fall, their rivals in 'N Sync  plan on actually being larger than life. And how.

The 'N Syncers are planning to release a big, big-screen Imax concert movie.

Shot Tuesday during a performance at Detroit's Pontiac Silverdome, the aptly titled 'N Sync: Bigger than Live will give fans an up-close look at Justin, JC, Lance, Joey and Chris strutting their stuff on stage.

The film, the first big-screen concert since The Rolling Stones--Live at the Max  rocked the large-format screen back in 1990, is scheduled to hit theaters in October. The Los Angeles-based Really Big Film Corp., a company which deals in large-format films, is producing and distributing the movie.

Bigger Than Live is not to be confused with the popsters' other movie project , currently 'N development, which the group announced at this year's Cannes Film Festival Although details are scarce, the quintet apparently will star, cowrite and coproduce the feature-length film. However, unlike other rock movies (see: Spice World), the guys will be playing characters other than their superstar selves. The project is slated to go before cameras next year.

In the meantime, the boys are continuing with their monster sold-out tour in support of their chart-topping, platinum-selling No Strings Attached  album.
