Hurd, who produced the live-action Aeon Flux film in 2005, will also serve as an executive producer.

What do you think about the upcoming Aeon Flux return? 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.

Sadly, the Aeon Flux movie was a disaster, both critically and at the box office.

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.

Microsoft drops official technical support for older products on community forums

Back in the '90s, MTV, having some late-night airtime to fill, chose to do it with Liquid Television, a showcase of weird indie animation. The first season was composed of six five minute shorts, but the second and third seasons had 15 half-hour episodes between the two seasons. 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. Produced by MTV Films and directed by Karyn Kusama, the film had an impressive cast that included Theron and Frances McDormand, but couldn't eke out either a critical or commercial victory.

MTV has put into development a live-action reboot of the animated series that aired for three seasons on the network in the 1990s, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. 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.

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