The Raid, which had its Midnight Madness screening last night, is getting a soundtrack overhaul. Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has been hired to create a new musical score for a film that was acquired by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group based on partial footage shown during the Cannes Film Festival. SWAG’s plan was to find a hip musician to improve the film, and it’s the first film job for Shinoda. The martial arts movie played strongly at its first showing, and agents are courting director Gareth Evans and his leads, Iko Uwais and Joe Taslim.
