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

Aeon Flux Revived By MTV With Live-Action Reboot

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. Hurd was also a producer for the 2005 Aeon Flux film adaptation. Those shorts were followed up with five additional short-form animated episodes in 1992, and in 1995, MTV ordered a 10-episode season of half-hour episodes as its own stand-alone series.

Released back on MTV in the Liquid Television days, Aeon Flux was an animated series that was full of violence, sex, and all around weirdness. Chung's animated series was groundbreaking stuff, seemingly building upon the thematic focus of the renegade animation found in efforts like 1981's Heavy Metal, except put through a stylised cyberpunk lens that - in 1991 - was considered mind-blowing.

The original MTV animated Aeon Flux show, created by animator Peter Chung, first debuted in 1991 as a six-part series of shorts. But after the critical and commercial disappointment of the big-screen Aeon Flux, MTV is having another go at it - this time, on its home turf. 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. Adding insult to injury, the movie was panned by both critics and audiences, earning an abysmal nine percent score from its reviews, and a mere 39 rating from movie-goers. Writing the script will be Teen Wolf's Jeff Davis.

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

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 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.
