Nick Carter celebrates as film breaks fundraising target

Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter is celebrating after he raised enough money to fund his horror movie project.

The singer turned to crowdsourcing website Kickstarter.com to garner public donations for a film called Evil Blessings, which he has co-written, and set a target of $85,000 to cover filming costs.

He has now smashed the target as the total reached more than $88,888 and Carter thanked fans for all their help, writing in a series of posts on Twitter.com, "Holy c**p. You guys are kicking a** on this campaign. I really can't believe it. I go to sleep, wake up and wow! We are really making a movie!... You proved the haters wrong for sure... I'm astonished... So proud of you guys."

The film was recently dealt a setback following the death of the director who was slated to take charge of filming, but Carter vowed to press on with the project.
