The Billie Woodruff-helmed film centers on a wife and mother caught up in the throes of sex addiction.

Boris Kodjoe has been cast in a lead role in Lionsgate’s Addicted.

The Billie Woodruff-helmed film, based on the novel by New York Times best-selling author Zane, will be produced by Paul Hall and executive produced by Charisse Nesbit. Christina Welsh wrote the screenplay.

The story centers on Zoe, a woman in a perfectly quaint marriage. The couple are busy raising three children while devoted to their careers. However, it’s not enough to fulfill all of her desires as she soon finds herself satisfying her addiction to sex with other men, which puts her on a dangerous path that she may not survive. The part of Zoe has not yet been cast.

Kodjoe was most recently seen in Resident Evil: Retribution as well as Resident Evil: Afterlife. He also appeared in Surrogates and Madea’s Family Reunion.

Kodjoe is repped by Gersh, Untitled and Bloom Hergott.
