    Pardon me if everyone knows this already, but I just read in People magazine that Charlize Theron’s next project will be to play Aeon Flux! She is described as a futuristic assasin (?) (as opposed to a monican agent).

    Is this old news here??? It took me a bit by surprise. I am a fan of the cartoon and am sceptical about Charlize Theron being up to the challenge.

    I mean she’s the cutest thing since Ava Garner… but isn’t Aeon Flux a) anorexic b)athletic c)dark haired d)anorexic e)did I mention thin…

    This is a tough casting call… honestly, I don’t even know who can play the character. There was this dark haired woman in Law and Order… Angie something or other…that sorta reminded me of Aeon…without the futuristic hair-doo… sorta.

    The people magazine blurb that I saw went on about how much weight C.Th. had lost (implying how great that is which is a little weird because it’s not like she looked fat at the oscars.)

    Besides, Aeon is a comic, and no actual woman could have her proportions (which don’t actually look ana. to me). It seems like she should be played by a tall, lanky but muscular woman.

    Sorry guys but I have to agree that Charlize T. is the wrong type. Like casting Leonardo Dicaprio as Superman or something.

    Aeon in the cartoon is an angular, classic beauty. C. T. has a very rounded baby face and a button nose. And they are going to have to draw eyebrows on her to get some definition and drama in her face. On the other hand, I am not exactly a casting agent! So I suppose they know what they are doing. We’ll have to see.

    I really did just want to join in on the fun. My first thought when I heard that Charlize Theron was going to be Aeon Flux was, “The hell you say!” But, I find the prospect of Halle Berry as Catwoman (with another name besides Selena Kyle) much more frightening/disconcerting. In the end, I’ll sit on the fence (those finials hurt BTW) and wait. I’ve doubted before and been pleasantly surprised.

    I’ve beening meaning to post this video clip to the Aeon Flux fan boards for a while now, but hadn’t found the right one until today.

    I’m a longtime fan of Aeon Flux and once dedicated an entire fashion line to works inspired by Peter Chungs erotic creation.

    I hope you enjoy the video clip:

    Speaking of adaptations, I think they have an interesting opportunity with an Aeon Flux movie….because it’s based on an anime series, they can easily compress elelments of the entire story arc into a movie….but we’ll see.

    (do I sound bitter lately??? maybe I should sit over here at my table for one 😛 )

    I think Charlize Theron has a much of a chance as any other human actor to pull off an anime to live action transation….though perhaps if they worked on how she was shot perspective wise on film, Carrie-Ann Moss could have done it too.

    Evodio – great Aeon design! now that’d be sumthin’ to wear to DC2006…if I had Aeon’s build 😉

    I’m new here but still not sure if the movie will be something like the animation, BTW Evodio: great Aeon Flux link 🙂

    What do you think of Lara Flynn Boyle for playing Aeon Flux? Ok it’s a little bit late but I think Lara is a great actress, beautiful woman and also played strange powerful women before…

    Yep, and I particularly like that outfit.

    It’s like she has a shelf for male sci fi sadgeezers to rest their pint o’beer

    To be honest, there are lots of women that look better to play Aeon that C Th. But I guess we’ll just have to give her the benefit of the doubt.

    Does anyone know if Peter Chung has had any input in this film?

    When you see how Theron managed to transform herself to play the role in “Monster”, I cannot but feel confident that she will make a credible Aeon. So I must disagree with the sceptics 😉

    Evodio! That looks great! The model is the perfect type!! (Which I am sorry to say I still think C.Th is not!) In fact, I am not comforted by how she looks with the short dark hair, go to Fashion Police at the golden globes if you don’t believe me

    It is not a flattering look on her 🙁 But here’s hoping the movie is good any way! Maybe they will do more than one like “batman”.

    Well, we’ll have to see the movie… 😕

    I, for one, think Theron is all wrong. Her body type isn’t close, for one… Her face… Nothing…

    I never really thought about it, but Lara Flynn Boyle would be perfect! She looks like her already! AND she’s anorexic!!!

    I’m more disgusted with the director (or producer?) than anyone else for doing away with Aeon’s entire wardrobe and turning them in for geriatric workout clothes… And WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CURLS?? I WANT AEONS CURLS BACK!

    Look, if the hair stylist didn’t think they could pull it off, someone should have placed a call to Wayne Static. That’s all I’m saying…

    Dude, that’s a wonder bra’s effects.. more or less… not that I’m saying that is a BAD thing!

    And even then, I can think of better uses for them.

    I for one find the idea of Theron playing Aeon wholly insane. She’s a good actress… but that isn’t really what is called for in this role.

    But she could suprise us and pulll a Deniro or a Bale, and lose a huge amount of weight, add a bunch of muscle, and somehow get the requisite chiseled features.

    You know a younger Angelica Houston would of been perfect for the part.

    hmm….what about a black Aeon ?

    Grace Jones !!

    (I realize she’d be too old by now, just hypothesizing).
