‘Aeon Flux’ Live-Action Reboot In Development At MTV

‘Aeon Flux’ Live-Action Reboot In Development At MTV

Attached to the show are Jeff Davis, the current showrunner of Teen Wolf, and Gale Anne Hurd, who works on The Walking Dead and was one of the producers of the 2005 movie. Chung's distorted figures performing acrobatic stunts in skimpy leather outfits, freakish futuristic architecture, zero dialogue, and ending every short by killing the protagonist in some brutal way, was unlike anything that was on the air before or largely since, and, after Charlize Theron and director Karyn Kusama tried to make it a film franchise in 2005, the cartoon is coming back to live action.

Aeon Flux is returning to its small-screen roots.

Created by animator Peter Chung, Aeon Flux was first introduced to the world in 1991 as an avant-garde six-part sequence of shorts that was featured in MTV's Liquid Television experimental animation series. Hurd produced the 2005 feature film, but was not involved with the original animated series.

The live-action reboot will reportedly center on Aeon Flux as a young assassin who partners with a group of biohacking rebels to save humanity. In 1995, it yet again returned for 10 half-hour episodes.

Sadly, the Aeon Flux movie was a disaster, both critically and at the box office. That film, which also starred Frances McDormand as Handler, Jonny Lee Miller as Oren Goodchild and Sophie Okenedo as Sithandra, earned just $25.8 million domestically and $52.3 million worldwide, from a $62 million budget.

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that MTV is revisiting their Aeon Flux property and is going forward in rebooting the property into a live-action series.

Industry insiders have indicated that MTV is preparing to open a studio to "help further monetize its library" as its parent company Viacom breathes new life into its brands.

Hopefully, this new series can match reverse that negative reaction.
