Linda Fiorentino : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

Peter, if you are reading this and have any influence whatsoever casting in the AEON live movie, for the love of god, PLEASE consider contacting Linda Fiorentino for the part. She has the class, the sass, and the body of the part, not to mention an uncanny resemblence to Denise Poitier's voice. She blow famke out of the water with this one AND she can act...

i've always thought liv tyler would be a good-looking Aeon. its the eyes. don't know if she has the acting chops (or the flexability) to pull it off tho

OMFG, I thought you wrote Liz Taylor at first. lol

-- chad (, May 25, 2003.

AAAWW, so u had to go ahead and actually SAY it??!?!?

-- cory guy (, May 25, 2003.

OMG! Yes, absolutely. I absolutely agree. Linda Fiorentino IS Aeon Flux!

What about Milla Jovovich?

-- RDN (, May 30, 2003.

Which of her films makes you think she would be the best Aeon? I can only recall MIB, but I would be interested to try another film with her. I'm not sure about Mila. I like her quite a lot, but I think Aeon reqires more acting skills regarding depth and variety of emotions than she can muster. Well, in case they make her just another Lara Croft in patent leather, this won't be of importance. Let's hope they don't.

Dear Sir,

Have you ever seen her in "Jade"? What about "The Last Seduction"? Good god, this woman has attitude...of the best sort!

-- Veronica DelCarmen (, May 30, 2003.

Maybe I'm just getting random neuron connections from the Animatrix idea, but has anyone considered Carrie Anne Moss? She's got the look, the talent, and the sheer ass-kickery necessary, doesn't she?

-- Charles Martin (, June 02, 2003.

Carrie Ann Moss has stated in multiple interviews that she will never play an action heroine again... so you can get that out of your heads now. :) I always wanted Famke Janssen to play Aeon, ever since I saw her in Goldeneye, all those years ago. Her facial structure and features in that film are PERFECT! Parker Posey has the look, too... but everything would be ruined the moment she opened her mouth.

Dear Veronica,

It took me some time to write this answer, because I took your suggestion serious and wanted to watch Jade and the last seduction first. In addition, I went to see some of her more recent work (Ordinary decent criminal, Liberty stands stll).

First of all I think you're absolutely right. Linda Fiorentino has Aeon's attitude and a lot of Denise's voice. I would never have guessed some real life person could come that close to Aeon. On the downside I see age (Linda is 43 by now. It's been 9 years now since the last seduction) and physical fitness. I haven't seen her doing anything more athletic than hm, well, you know and ordering manhattans in any of her movies. Still I couldn't think of anyone who would fit in better than her but I think at this stage I go with Peter who said somewhere, he hoped for some completelly new face for Aeon's part.

That brings me to Carrie Ann Moss (Hi Charles!). I like her a lot, too. But I think she is too strongly associated with her part as Trinity. She wouild surely transfer some of Trinity's personality on Aeon, thus undermining Aeon's uniqueness.

The biggest risk of this live action movie will be anyway (imho) that Aeon will get shaped up for the mass market as another big boobed bimbo with guns. That's what should be avoided in the first place. Therefore, I hope the producers will find some fresh face that is willing and able to devote herself to the role than some major (or wannabe major) star who just wishes to play herself once more.

Anyway, Veronica, thank you for the great suggestion of Linda Fiorentino. I will watch out for her other movies in the future because I think she really rocks (I especially liked her in the last seduction. Manhattan, please, thank you). I will keep my eyes open for other actresses that might be right for the honor to play Aeon.

-- Zak (, June 13, 2003.

Linda Fiorentino sounds like a sound choice, but someone else occured to me: Gina Gershon. What do you think? I remember a long time ago when I first watched Bound (1996) that there was something about her screen persona that made me think about Aeon. I just watched the DVD again to find out what, and I got it: it's the way she looks at thing. Makes everything look like suspicious and desirable at the same time. She's one hell of an actress, I think she would be a great Aeon.

Yeah, good point, she does have the right kind of x-factor about her.
