As you might already know, Linkin Park has been working since at least September 2012 on the soundtrack and score to "The Mall", the first full-length film by Joe Hahn. An August 16, 2013 interview
with the band by Yahoo, saying:"The movie stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Gina Gershon, Peter Stormage, James Frecheville, and Cameron Monaghan, and is based on the Eric Bogosian novel about five unhappy suburbanites who become inextricably entwined one night when Frecheville goes on a shooting spree in a shopping mall.
Hahn has started shooting the film, but there is no scheduled release date. Linkin Park are creating the soundtrack with help from Deadsy drummer Alec Püre. While a few songs will feature Bennington's recognizable vocals, much of the material is instrumental.
"There’s a different mindset going into scoring a movie than making a record because you're trying to capture the scene without having the music distract you from what you’re looking at," Bennington said. "We’re trying to capture the emotional quality of the film, so there's a lack of structure and there aren't very many parts when compared to radio songs. Also, there are different characters in the movie that require different threads of sounds. So there's a lot of cool elements we’re working with.""
Heidi Hahn, Joe's wife, recently posted on Twitter: "So proud of @joehahnlp very first feature film screening at paramount studios."

lists the film as having a July 16, 2014 release date.
Do you think we'll see the movie and soundtrack released this year? Or do you think the band will push it back to 2015 due to The Hunting Party coming out in June?
