He'll be joined by executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, the veteran film and television producer, who serves as EP for The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead.
The live-action series will take fans back to the "biohacking rebels" attempting to save humanity from some totalitarian baddies, all while Aeon Flux becomes one of science fiction's coolest spy/assassins. Chung's distorted figures performing acrobatic stunts in skimpy leather outfits, freaky futuristic architecture, zero dialogue, and ending every short by killing the protagonist in some brutal way, was unlike anything that was on the air before or largely since, and, after Charlize Theron and director Karyn Kusama tried to make it a film franchise in 2005, the cartoon is coming back to live action.
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"). Hurd produced the 2005 feature film, but was not involved with the original animated series.

Aeon Flux may be returning to MTV. 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.
Aeon Flux started out as as a series of six experimental animated shorts that aired during MTV's "Liquid Television" animation showcase in 1991. Writing the script will be Teen Wolf's Jeff Davis. However, after years of other-media manifestations, notably a Dark Horse Comics limited series, Aeon Flux would be - after a decade of dormancy - revived with the 2005 live-action movie, directed by Karyn Kusama, in which Charlize Theron played Aeon. The movie has a miserable 9% on Rotten Tomatoes and couldn't even make back its $62 million budget at the box office. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the time is ripe for a reboot. We'll find out as MTV moves forward on the show.
