With its wildly inventive, ultra-violent action sequences and rich storylines, Peter Chung’s cult anime series, Aeon Flux, is a natural choice for expansion into the game sphere. Now, thirteen years after bowing on MTV, the property is finally set make its interactive debut in time for the fall 2005 release of the eagerly awaited, live-action, big-screen adaptation from Paramount Pictures and Lakeshore Ent. Majesco has secured the worldwide rights to publish the Aeon Flux video game for Xbox and PlayStation2.
The live-action Aeon Flux feature stars Oscar winner Charlize Theron (Monster) as the title character, the top rebel operative in the futuristic city-state of Bregna, the last refuge for humanity in a disease-ravished world. When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill a government leader, she uncovers a world of secrets. Directed by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight), film also stars Frances McDormand (Fargo), Marton Csokas (The Bourne Supremacy), Oscar-nominee Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda), Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting), and Pete Postlethwaite (The Usual Suspects).
Developed by Terminal Reality, creators of Majesco’s hit BloodRayne series, Majesco’s Aeon Flux game will tie together the animated series and the motion picture. Theron will even lend her voice and likeness to the project. More information about the game and Majesco’s entire product line, go to http://www.majescogames.com.
