After they made an action movie of Aeon Flux in 2005, now they are going to try it again but in serial format.
Aeon Flux is an avant-garde animation program created by Peter Chung which began broadcasting in 1991 in MTV. Thanks to the fact that it was aimed at a young-adult audience and was a mixture of action, violence, sex and black humor, it became a cult piece. For this reason, in 2005 they made a film starring Charlize Theronbut it was a flop, costing about $62 million and only grossing $53 million worldwide.
Now is the time to do a fresh reset in live action of Aeon Fluxbut it will be a series and they have chosen Jeff Davis (Teen Wolf), who has revealed on Collider that she wants to step away from her last job.
“It’s funny, a lot of people ask the question… where do you see yourself in 10 years? I always answer the same thing, which is that I don’t know what I’ll do in six months. This business is so fickle and tumultuous that you never really know. I’ll take what’s in front of me. I am very excited about my next Paramount+ project, which is Aeon Flux, the MTV anime adaptation that tells a sci-fi story. As much as I love being the werewolf guy, there are other genres to explore. But I also love these stories. After 100 episodes of Teen Wolf, I said, I’ll never do another werewolf story again. I was quite wrong.”
He has given details of what they are preparing.
Aeon Flux it will honor the original material, but there will be changes. This is how he explains it himself Jeff Davis.
“With any project that’s a reboot or a remake, you can’t worry about what old fans will think. You have to be true to the source material, in a way that is true to your own artistic vision. If you get to a project like that, yes, I know it’s going to be criticized. I know people will come at me with pitchforks and say, That’s not the Aeon Flux of my childhood. You can’t care. You have to tell the story you want to tell. So, that’s what I’m doing with it. I’m a big fan of the TV show. I loved it, as a child. So, you’ll see inspiration in it, but you’ll also see changes because it has to become a show that makes sense, and it’s not just a beautiful five-minute piece of avant-garde music.”
