Aeon Flux Reboot Coming To MTV

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that MTV is revisiting their Aeon Flux property and is going forward in rebooting the property into a live-action series. Rebooting Aeon Flux is the newest effort in Viacom's grand plan, which also saw Jersey Shore, TRL, and Yo MTV Raps land revivals. The formerly-music-minded cabler has tapped familiar talent in Jeff Davis to write the script and serve as executive producer.

MTV, as it would eventually do for fellow Liquid Television-grown Beavis And Butt-Head, gave Aeon Flux its own series after its initial six segments, with five short episodes serving as "season 2, ' followed by a 10-episode run of half-hour episodes in 1995 ('season 3"). Davis served as showrunner for MTV's Teen Wolf throughout the entirety of its 2011-2017 run, and is also known as the creator of the long-running CBS procedural, Criminal Minds.

Created by animator Peter Chung, Aeon Flux was first introduced to the world in 1991 as an avant-garde six-part sequence of shorts that was featured in MTV's Liquid Television experimental animation series. The film took place 400 years into the future, when disease had wiped out the majority of the earth's population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists.

The series centered on the title character, who hailed from the nation of Monica, who was a skilled assassin and acrobat. Though the film bombed hard at the box office and got roasted like chestnuts over an open fire by critics, MTV tapping Hurd to help usher the property to the small screen might be a wise choice, as she can likely use her insider knowledge of what went wrong to prevent the live-action series from suffering the same fate. Hurd produced the 2005 feature film, but was not involved with the original animated series. That film, which also starred Frances McDormand as Handler, Jonny Lee Miller as Oren Goodchild and Sophie Okenedo as Sithandra, earned just $25.8 million domestically and $52.3 million worldwide, from a $62 million budget.

The Hollywood Reporter was first to report news of the reboot.
