Col clocks in ‘Tick Tock’

'Panic Room's' Polone to produce

This article was corrected on March 17, 2001.NEW YORK — Columbia Pictures has set Danny Boyle to direct “Tick-Tock,” a high action suspense thriller

written by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry. The film is on track to begin production in the fall.

“Tick-Tock” focuses on an amnesiac who wakes up in FBI custody, the prime suspect in a series of bombings in Los Angeles. The suspect must help a young FBI agent race through the city in a desperate search to find and disarm the remaining bombs, as he tries to recover his memory enough to figure out whether he actually planted the explosives.

The film is being produced by Gavin Polone, who’s currently in production at Columbia with another suspense nail-biter, the David Fincher-directed “The Panic Room,” starring Jodie Foster. The film was brought into the studio last fall in a low seven-figure spec buy.

Boyle, who made his directing debut on the celebrated indie film “Shallow Grave,” is best known for directing the controversial “Trainspotting,” and most recently helmed “The Beach.”
