‘Aeon Flux’ Live-Action Reboot In Development At MTV

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.

Written by Davis, the live-action series is set in a future dystopian state and revolves around a young assassin who teams with a group of biohacking rebels to save humanity as she becomes the hero known as Aeon Flux. 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.

Aeon Flux is only one of the many MTV properties that the cable network plans to mine from its archives.

The original Aeon Flux aired in 1991 on MTV as a series of shorts created by animator Peter Chung. It wasn't until 1995 that a ten-episode half hour long animated series was released. This will be the first time Aeon Flux will be in live-action on the small screen.

I'm happy to see that MTV is going back to its roots with Aeon Flux in a way, and I hope this opens up the door for a return of other Liquid Television segments.

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 holds a Rotten Tomatoes score of just 9 percent. Davis also wrote a new version of War of the Worlds in 2016, that is said to be still in contention for a series order at MTV, and he's also working on a brand new incarnation of Teen Wolf for MTV, which is said to be a new anthology series that could potentially bring back characters from the original show. Jeff Davis saw huge success with his MTV reboot of Teen Wolf, which reworked the campy Michael J. Fox '80s feature film into a gritty and gory series with a sweeping mythology. Is this a good move by MTV, or are they setting themselves up for failure?
