MTV Developing Aeon Flux Live-Action Reboot

Paramount

Jeff Davis, the showrunner of MTV's Teen Wolf, is attached to write the series' script and will executive produce alongside Gale Anne Hurd. Chung's distorted figures performing acrobatic stunts in skimpy leather outfits, weird 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.

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.

The live-action series will take fans back to the "biohacking rebels" attempting to save humanity from some totalitarian baddies, all while Aeon Flux becomes one of science fiction's coolest spy/assassins. In 1995, a season of ten half-hour episodes aired as a stand-alone series. But after the critical and commercial disappointment of the big-screen Aeon Flux, MTV is having another go at it - this time, on its home turf. This new report also reveals that MTV is getting ready to launch a new studio entirely devoted to monetizing the rest of its library of properties.

In 2005, Paramount Pictures, Lakeshore Entertainment, and Hurd's Valhalla Motion Pictures banner teamed for an Aeon Flux feature film.

Trump adviser apologizes for 'inappropriate' comments targeting Tru..
Over the weekend, Trump aides on Sunday morning news shows called Trudeau a backstabber who deserved a "special place in hell". President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau engaged in a war of words after the G7 summit.

The 2005 feature starring Theron and co-starring Frances McDormand and produced by MTV Films, did not fare well either critically or financially, earning just $52.3 million worldwide.

This project keeps Davis in business with MTV, after six successful seasons of Teen Wolf, which ended its run previous year.

Hopefully, this live-action TV series revival will have better luck.

The Hollywood Reporter was first to report news of the reboot. We'll find out as MTV moves forward on the show.
