Multiple Media Entertainment Acquires Exclusive Canadian Rights To "Mall"
Toronto, ON (October 16, 2014) – Multiple Media Entertainment (MME), a full service media content creation and distribution company, has acquired the exclusive Canadian distribution rights to the unique thriller “Mall”, directed by Linkin Park band member Joe Hahn with his feature film debut. The film will have an exclusive theatrical run in Toronto along with a digital release, kicking off on Friday, October 24 at Big Picture Cinemas, and on iTunes as of October 31. VOD and Pay-Per-View windows will begin in November 2014. For more information and to watch the official trailer, please go to http://multiplemediaentertainment.ca.
Vincent D'Onofrio("Jurassic World", Marvel's "Daredevil"), Joe Vinciguerra and Sam Bisbee wrote the screenplay for “MALL” which was adapted from the 2001 novel of the same name by Eric Bogosian. D'Onofrio also produces, with Silver Lining Entertainment partner Sam Maydew, and stars in the film along with Gina Gershon ("Killer Joe"), Cameron Monaghan (TV's "Shameless"), Peter Stormare ("Fargo") and James Frecheville ("Animal Kingdom"). The movie, as seen through the eyes of Jeff, played by Cameron Monaghan, examines a group of disaffected suburbanites who find themselves at a shopping mall in the wake of a seemingly random shooting, and whose outlooks on their own lives are positively transformed as a result.
Linkin Park, the multi-platinum Grammy Award-winning rock band, is the only band to have five consecutive #1 albums this century. Joe Hahn, who is responsible for the beats, programming and keyboard in the band, has directed as many as 30 of Linkin Park’s groundbreaking music videos, including "New Divide" from "Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen", which has over 165 million views on YouTube, as well as the band's latest video of their worldwide hit "Until It's Gone" from their new album, "The Hunting Party". He makes his feature film directorial debut with "Mall".
"We are excited to have acquired this exceptional film from Paragon Pictures,” says Jennifer Graham, SVP, Sales and Acquisitions at MME. “There is no doubt Linkin Park’s massive Canadian fan base will embrace this alongside our passionate film community here.”
