Aeon Flux may be returning to MTV. Attached to the show are Jeff Davis, the current showrunner of Teen Wolf, and Gale Anne Hurd, who works on The Walking Dead and was one of the producers of the 2005 movie.
The original series, 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, followed in 1992 by five individual short episodes. The animated Aeon Flux series was well liked by critics and fans, and Davis' Teen Wolf was widely beloved by MTV audiences throughout its six season run on the cable network. Showcasing stylistically ultraviolent aesthetics, Aeon Flux (or, more fancifully, Æon Flux,) is set in a dystopia of the far-future of 7698, in which most of the world's population has been wiped out by environmental catastrophe, leaving only two major city-states.
The series centered on the title character, who hailed from the nation of Monica, who was a skilled assassin and acrobat.
The 2005 live-action film, in which Theron was joined by Jonny Lee Miller and Frances McDormand, was a critical and commercial failure, earning just $52.3 million worldwide on an estimated production budget of $65 million. - Plus, it had the misfortune of a December debut that put it up against Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire.
Sadly, the Aeon Flux movie was a disaster, both critically and at the box office. 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. This new report also reveals that MTV is getting ready to launch a new studio entirely devoted to monetizing the rest of its library of properties.
