Actioner penned by Bagarozzi, Mondry

HOLLYWOOD — It’s J. Lo-a-go-go at Columbia Pictures.

Jennifer Lopez, who is lensing Col’s “Enough” for helmer Michael Apted, is now close to another Columbia deal: The actress will star as an FBI agent in the studio’s actioner, “Tick Tock.”

Col bought the suspenser from the writing team of Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry in February 2000 for over $1 million.

Pic is an actioner about an amnesiac who awakens in the custody of the FBI as the prime suspect in a series of Los Angeles bombings. Without knowing whether he actually is the bomber or merely someone set up to take the fall, he must help guide a young FBI agent though L.A. in a race to find and disarm the remaining explosives.

Lopez’s sophomore album has sold 4 million copies worldwide to date. Her last pic, Col-Intermedia’s “The Wedding Planner,” has earned $60 million.

Lopez is being repped in the negotiations by International Creative Management and Handprint Entertainment, with insiders projecting a fall start date, failing a forsoothed Screen Actors Guild strike this summer.

She next appears in Warner Bros.’ supernatural thriller “Angel Eyes,” unspooling this May.

“Tick Tock’s” development is being supervised by Col’s exec veepee of production Matt Tolmach and by creative exec Jonathan Kadin.
