The original animated series ran for three seasons on MTV during the 1990s. If the live-action series gets the green light, it would not be the first time Aeon Flux has gotten the live-action treatment. In 2005, the animated series served as the source for a live-action, sci-fi action movie starring Charlize Theron in the title role. The film did not do great at the box office, and a sequel never materialized. The Walking Dead‘s Gale Anne Hurd was one of the producers on the movie.
