Aeon Flux: According to The Hollywood Reporter, visual effects boutique BUF Compagnie is in exclusive talks to produce the cityscapes and futurist environments for Paramount Pictures' live-action adaptation of the MTV animated series Aeon Flux.

The Paris-based digital effects house has agreed to create the previsualizations and a few hundred computer-generated shots in addition to supervising the visual effects on the high-flying sci-fi actioner starring Charlize Theron and Frances McDormand.

The movie centers on an acrobatic assassin (Theron) and her handler (McDormand) involved in an underground rebellion in a city of the future.
