Aeon Flux live-action TV series in the works

Aeon Flux Revived By MTV With Live-Action Reboot

Aeon Flux is returning to its small-screen roots. He'll be joined by executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, the veteran film and television producer, who serves as EP for The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead.

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.

It will be interesting to see if Aeon Flux can (finally) work in a live-action capacity, especially with the 2005 dud of a movie serving ignominiously as the only attempt.

That said, it's very much of its time, and it'll be a challenge to reboot this in a way that's faithful to Chung's original approach.

Takfiri terrorists attack besieged Shia towns in Syria's Idlib: Monitor
Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said strikes had also hit near a children's hospital, putting it out of service. The fighting, which was continuing Sunday, had killed six Syrian pro-regime fighters and at least three from HTS.

Hey, do you remember Aeon Flux? The live-action Aeon Flux takes place in a futuristic dystopian state and centers around the titular acrobatic assassin Aeon Flux, who partners with a rag-tag crew of biohacking scoundrels in efforts to save humanity. Sources told THR that MTV is preparing to launch a studio that will further monetize its library as part of Viacom's push to revitalize its cable brands.

Aeon Flux started out as as a series of six experimental animated shorts that aired during MTV's "Liquid Television" animation showcase in 1991. In 1995, it yet again returned for 10 half-hour episodes. Can a live-action show pull that off, or will it have to go in another direction entirely? Davis served as showrunner for MTV's Teen Wolf throughout the entirety of its 2011-2017 run, and is also known as the creator of the long-running CBS procedural, Criminal Minds. 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.

Hopefully, this live-action TV series revival will have better luck. Is this a good move by MTV, or are they setting themselves up for failure?
