LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- The five members of the once-popular U.S. band New Kids on the Block reportedly are reuniting 24 years after the "Hangin' Tough" group first formed.

An unidentified source said Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Wood, along with brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, are prepared to make a musical comeback together, People magazine reported in an exclusive Saturday.

The pop band's official Web site has become active again and the source said an official announcement regarding the band's future should occur within weeks.

In the 1980s and early '90s, the New Kids on the Block were a force in the world of music as the five young men sold more than 50 million albums.

Since the band disbanded in 1994, Wahlberg and McIntyre have gone on to acting careers, while Wood has embraced a career as a music producer.

People said that while Jordan Knight has continued to create new music, his brother Jonathan left the music industry to enjoy a career as a real estate developer.
