I may already be drooling now in anticipation of this movie. A big-screen adaption of erotica writer Zane’s novel “Addicted” has been rumored to be in the works for a minute but it finally looks like the ball is actually rolling. According to Shadow and Act, Lionsgate is behind the film and they have just cast some amazing eye candy as the male lead in the book: Boris Kodjoe.
In case you need a refresher, he’s a synopsis of the psychological drama:
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.
It’s not known what specific male lead Boris will be taking on, but I’m leaning more toward the sensitive artist character than the dangerous guy Zoe gets involved with but we shall see. He could also play a good hubby too.
Female leads are up in the air also, but S ad A has heard that Nia Long was being considered for Zoe and Tasha Smith as the therapist. That could be an interesting mix.
Although production was supposed to begin this summer, the film has yet again been delayed – until when we’re not certain. I’m definitely crossing my fingers that this eventually happens.
What do you think about Boris in “Addicted?” Can you see Nia and Tasha in the film?
