*Lionsgate will release Zane‘s popular erotic novel “Addicted” in theaters on March 14, 2014 to a crowded 1st quarter of 2of that year for black films.
“Addicted” follows the life of a sex crazed African American business woman as she goes through the trials and tribulations of life.
The film stars Sharon Leal, Tasha Smith, Boris Kodjoe, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Tyson Beckford and William Levy, in a Paul Hall production, with Bille Woodruff directing, and Charisse Nesbit executive producing.
The novel is described as a psychological drama, with an official synopsis that reads:
For Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction…to sex. Finding a compassionate woman therapist to help her, Zoe finally summons the courage to tell her torrid story, a tale of guilt and desire as shocking as it is compelling. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets to the rough and violent man who draws her toward destruction, Zoe is a woman desperately searching for fulfillment — and something darker, deeper, and perhaps deadly. As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous choice, Zoe is racing against time to uncover the source of her “fatal attraction” — as chilling secrets tumble forth from the recesses of a woman’s mind, and perilous temptations lead toward a climax that can threaten her sanity, her marriage… and her life.
Filming was done in Atlanta earlier this year.
