Lionsgate has picked up the rights to the Zane erotica novel, Addicted.

The indie studio is banking on one of the country's top African-American women authors, in hopes of replicating the B.O.B.O. success it's enjoyed with the Tyler Perry pics, reports Variety.

Addicted takes a look at female sexuality, revolves around a successful black woman who has a series of affairs, threatening her marriage and motherhood.

Zane, teaming with One Voice Communications, also is developing a stage version of Addicted that is set to preempreem this fall and tour 55 cities in 36 weeks.

No production schedule has been set for Addicted
