With all of the hype surrounding 50 Shades of Grey, rumors of a film adaption of Zane's popular novel Addiction have also surfaced. Appropriately enough, Nia Long, the dream girl of Black men everywhere, is reportedly slated to play the lead role of Zoe Reynard, a sex addict. Tasha Smith, best known for her role in Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married" series, has been rumored to play Reynard's therapist. Filmmaker Bille Woodruff is also allegedly slated to direct the film. While none of this information has been set in stone, many Zane fans will certainly jump for joy if, in fact, "Addicted" is brought to the silver screen.
For those who have yet to read Zane's addictive novel, here is a brief synopsis of the rumored 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.
