Aeon Flux to get live action series

Animated 1991 sci fi Aeon Flux is getting a live action series from MTV.

The original Aeon Flux, 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.

It returned in 1992 with five individual short-form episodes and again in 1995 as a 10-episode half-hour series, all of them animated.

A feature film, starring Charlize Theron, was released in 2005.

The Hollywood Reporter notes Jeff Davis (Teen Wolf) is on board to write the script and executive produce the drama alongside Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead). Hurd also produced the 2005 film.

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.

  1. This is one of those prospective sci-fi shows that could succeed or flounder after a couple of seasons, it certainly looks interesting and expensive to make. The choice of actor for the main role could be a deal breaker for some fans whenever the announcement is made.
