‘Aeon Flux’ Live-Action Reboot Series in the Works at MTV

Project comes from former “Teen Wolf” showrunner Jeff David and “The Walking Dead” executive producer Gale Anne Hurd

MTV is rebooting “Aeon Flux.”

A live-action version of the ’90s animated series that ran on the Viacom-owned cable network is currently in development, a person with knowledge of the production tells TheWrap.

The TV reboot will be written and executive produced by “Teen Wolf” showrunner Jeff Davis. “The Walking Dead”s Gale Anne Hurd — who produced the 2005 feature film version of the story, starring Charlize Theron and Frances McDormand — will also executive produce.

“Aeon Flux” 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 titular hero known as Aeon Flux.

The original series — created by animator Peter Chung — debuted on MTV in 1991 as six shorts included in its Liquid Television animated series. “Aeon Flux” came back with five more shorts in 1992 and then in 10 half-hour episodes in 1995.

“Aeon Flux” is the latest in a string of series to get the revival treatment at the younger-skewing network, with returns of “Jersey Shore,” “Yo! MTV Raps” and “TRL” in the works.

The movie version of “Aeon Flux” was both a box office and critical failure, with a 9 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.
