Lionsgate ‘Addicted’ to erotica for film

Lionsgate is getting “Addicted.” The indie studio has bought film rights to the novel from hard-edged erotica writer Zane, one of the country’s top African-American women authors, in hopes of replicating the B.O. success it’s enjoyed with the Tyler Perry pics. “Addicted,” which like many of Zane’s other eight books takes an unflinching look at female sexuality, revolves around a successful black woman who has a series of affairs, threatening her marriage and motherhood.
