Aeon Flux Revived By MTV With Live-Action Reboot

Hey, do you remember Aeon Flux? Jeff Davis (showrunner of movie reboot Teen Wolf) will be writing the drama as well as executive producing alongside The Walking Dead's Gale Anne Hurd (who also produced the film version).

The original series, created by animator Peter Chung, first aired on MTV in 1991 as a six-part sequence of shorts that was featured in its Liquid Television experimental animation series, followed in 1992 by five individual short episodes.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, MTV will be changing the plot slightly.

Aeon Flux takes place in the future, at a time when only two cities have survived a global disaster.

Fiscally liberal USA senator Lindsey Graham of SC - always on the lookout for a nation to invade - drafted ... authorization the of force North in of Trump's with in Singapore. "This a step, is good but we're long away an agreement", told "CBS Morning" Tuesday.

Back in the '90s, MTV, having some late-night airtime to fill, made a decision to do it with Liquid Television, a showcase of weird indie animation. It wasn't until 1995 that a ten-episode half hour long animated series was released.

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. Denise Poirier voiced Aeon Flux with John Rafter Lee voicing Goodchild, roles which were portrayed by Charlize Theron and Martin Csokas in the 2005 live-action thriller.

The less said about the feature film Aeon Flux, the better.

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. The movie has a miserable 9% on Rotten Tomatoes and couldn't even make back its $62 million budget at the box office. Hopefully the biohacking includes cloning, because having the protagonist creatively bite it every time a new short ran really was part of the fun. Perhaps Davis could bring his skill with balancing rich characters with the more unbelievable aspects of a fantasy series to Aeon Flux.
