Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn makes directorial debut with ‘Mall’


Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn makes his directorial debut with ‘Mall’, a story based on author/actor Eric Bogosian’s quasi-psycholigical novel of the same name.

Due to be released via Netflix on March 17th, the film tells the story of Malcom, who is done with his life. Only the noise of Crystal Meth gives him a reason to keep going. Equipped with a bag full of weapons and self-made bombs, he makes his way to the nearby mall to really stir things up. On his personal war campaign, he not only changes his life radically, but also the fate of other people who are in the wrong place at the wrong time. The film stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Gina Gershon and Cameron Monaghan.

Joe Hahn is best known as the DJ and programmer for two time Grammy-Award-winning band, Linkin Park. Hahn began deejaying in high school, and studied at the Art Center of College Design, where he met future bandmate, Mike Shinoda. Linkin Park has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, and their latest album, The Hunting Party reached #1 on the iTunes store in 67 countries.

An accomplished artist and painter, Hahn has directed over 30 of Linkin Park’s music videos, which have received over 150 million views on Youtube. He recently directed the video for the band’s single ‘Until It’s Gone,’ which received a MTV VMA nomination for Best Rock video.
