MTV Developing Live-Action Reboot of Aeon Flux

Aeon Flux Revived By MTV With Live-Action Reboot

MTV Developing Live-Action 'Aeon Flux' Series From 'Teen Wolf' Showrunner

It paid off for them in a big way, as it's how they discovered Beavis And Butt-head, but it also worked with Peter Chung's Aeon Flux.

MTV is developing a live-action series reboot of their classic 1990s animated series Aeon Flux.

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. The show was created by animator Peter Chung, and is set in the year 7698, in the aftermath of a global environmental crisis that wiped out almost the entire planet, except for two border cities in what was previously referred to as Eastern Europe.

Hey, do you remember Aeon Flux? 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. In 1995, a season of ten half-hour episodes aired as a stand-alone series. It also had a live-action movie, but we don't talk about that.

The 2005 live-action film, in which Theron was joined by Jonny Lee Miller and Frances McDormand, was a critical and commercial failure, earning just $52.3 million worldwide on an estimated production budget of $65 million. That makes sense after the film had a rough go with critics, fans, and the box office while the series still retains much of its goodwill among the industry and fan communities.

There is no indication yet as to whether or not original series creator Peter Chung, who went on to work on The Animatrix and Rugrats, will be involved in this live-action reboot, or if any of the creative team from the live-action reboot will return, such as director Karyn Kusama and writers Phil Hay and Matt Mandredi.

The project marks a return to MTV for Davis, who created and served as showrunner on Teen Wolf, which ran for six seasons and was the highest-rated scripted series in network history. The first few seasons of Teen Wolf were actually quite good, and set up the supernatural series to be this generation's answer to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
