Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn to make his directorial debut with ‘Mall’ starring Chelsea Handler
After directing many of his band’s music videos, Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn is set to make his directorial debut with Mall, a film adaption of Eric Bogosian’s dark crime novel of the same name.
Deadline reports that the film, which will follow “the intersecting paths of five disaffected suburbanites,” has cast late night talk show host Chelsea Handler, who will be playing the dark role of a “restless housewife,” and Law & Order: Criminal Intent actor Vincent D’Onofrio as a “voyeuristic businessman.” D’Onofrio, who also co-wrote the script, told Deadline that the “film will be a comment on social violence” and described the film’s premise:
“It begins as a man walks through the front door of a suburban mall armed to the teeth, causing five strangers to embark on a night that will change them forever. As the bullets fly, one teenage boy hurtles through the night on a collision course with the man he will become.”
Joe Hahn expressed that he was “very excited to to be making this dark film with these great actors” on his official website.
Interestingly, Hahn also holds the rights to China Mieville’s novel King Rat. In other words, this is only the beginning of Hahn’s film career.
