Before ‘50 Shades of Grey’ had white suburban women going crazy, Zane was heating up the pages with some of the best erotica you ever want to read.
Now Zane is getting the Hollywood treatment as one of her best-selling books, Addicted, heads to the big screen.
Shadow and Act is confirming that Boris Kodjoe and Tasha Smith will be starring in the film. It was originally thought that Nia Long would star as the lead character, Zoe Reynard, but that part has reportedly gone to Sharon Leal.
Here’s a synopsis of the film:
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.
I’ve read a few of Zane’s books and I can honestly say I think ‘Addicted’ is her best work. I looked forward to seeing the film which is currently shooting. Famed video director, Billie Woodruff, is directing the film.
