Linkin Park DJ Joe Hahn is about to release his debut feature movie "Mall" this autumn, Loudwire reports.

Paragon Pictures has acquired the North American rights to the film, which comes from a screenplay penned by Vincent D'Onofrio, Joe Vinciguerra and Sam Bisbee, adapted from a 2001 novel from Eric Bogosian. D'Onofrio, best known for his roles in "Full Metal Jacket," "Men in Black," "Ed Wood" and TV's "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," will also star in the thriller along with Gina Gershon, Cameron Monaghan, Peter Stormare and James Frecheville.

The movie follows a group of suburbanites who find themselves at a shopping mall in the wake of a random shooting and how their outlooks on life are transformed as a result.

It's reported that the other members of the band - Mike Shinoda, Rob Bourdon, Phoenix and Chester Bennington - wrote the score and the original soundtrack for the movie with the help of Deadsy's Alec Puro.

As soon as it's his first full-length feature movie ever, Joe Hahn is not a rookie in directing - he was at the helm of making of the most Linkin Park music videos, including "Numb," "In the End," "Papercut," "Somewhere I Belong," "Burning in the Skies," MTV VMA-winning "Breaking the Habit" and the most recent "Until It's Gone." He also directed the music videos for Xzibit, Story of the Year, Static-X and the X-Ecutioners, alongside with directing his first ever short movie "The Seed" in 2008.

Paragon Pictures CEO Evan Crooke stated, "We are delighted to have acquired this unique film from Joe Hahn, who we think is a visionary director." The film is expected to be released this fall, following Linkin Park's "Carnivores" tour dates with Thirty Seconds to Mars and AFI.

    The movie is already available, some french retailers already have it. There are a few new songs ripped from those versions, but they're not the full songs. The trailer track is orgasmic (2nd one). Will attach links on another post since UG is being a bitch about posting links.
