Linkin Park‘s DJ Joe Hahn has been responsible for some of the band’s most creative and well-received music videos, and he’s about to take his keen eye to a bigger medium. Hahn has signed on to direct the new feature film ‘Mall.’

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.

Hahn’s video credits include the clips for ‘In the End,’ ‘Papercut,’ ‘Somewhere I Belong,’ ‘Numb,’ ‘Breaking the Habit,’ ‘New Divide,’ ‘Bleed It Out’ and most recently ‘Until It’s Gone.’ He’s also shot videos for Story of the Year, Static-X, the X-Ecutioners and Xzibit. ‘Mall’ will be Hahn’s feature film debut.

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. That trek kicks off on Aug. 8.
