Majesco Inks Worldwide Publishing Deal For Aeon Flux Games

Majesco announced it has secured the worldwide rights to publish AEON FLUX for the Xbox and PlayStation 2. The game is scheduled to coincide with the theatrical release. Majesco's AEON FLUX ties together the animated series, which ran on MTV from 1992-1997, and the motion picture, which is slated for release in fall 2005.

"We are excited to be partnering with MTV and Terminal Reality on such an encompassing project as AEON FLUX," said Jesse Sutton president of Majesco. "By including the voice talent and likeness of Charlize Theron, we hope to provide consumers with a product that seamlessly fits within the world of AEON FLUX yet offers an interactive component that complements its entertainment counterparts."

Developed by Terminal Reality, creators of Majesco's hit BLOODRAYNE series, AEON FLUX is based on Peter Chung's popular futuristic MTV animated series. As beautiful as she is lethal, Aeon Flux is an agent whose abilities transcend everyday belief; she will depend upon those skills and talents to rid the city of Bregna from an evil tyranny.

The film stars Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron (MONSTER) as Aeon Flux, Marton Csokas (THE BOURNE SUPREMACY), Osacr-winner Frances McDormand (FARGO), Oscar-nominee Sophie Okonedo (HOTEL RWANDA), Jonny Lee Miller (TRAINSPOTTING) and Pete Postlethwaite (THE USUAL SUSPECTS). GIRLFIGHTs Karyn Kusama is directing.

Paramount Pictures'/Lakeshore Entertainment's AEON FLUX is set 400 years in the future, when disease has wiped out the majority of the earth's population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists. The story centers on Aeon Flux (Theron), the top operative in the underground 'Monican' rebellion, led by The Handler (McDormand). When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill a government leader, she uncovers a world of secrets.

Paramount Pictures is part of the entertainment operations of Viacom Inc., one of the world's largest entertainment and media companies and a leader in the production, promotion and distribution of entertainment news, sports and music.

MTV Films is the feature film development and production division of MTV that releases films in conjunction with Paramount Pictures. Since its inception in 1995, MTV Films has established itself as a unique movie label with a slate of diverse and successful films.
