Kevin Tancharoen, the choreographer turned filmmaker who kicked ass with those “Mortal Kombat” webseries (the second season of which recently hit the net), has decided he’s not waiting around for the feature film version of the console classic to get off the ground.

Taking a page out of, well, every other director who has been attached to a new “Mortal Kombat” movie over the years, Tancharoen’s decided to pack his bags and work on something that’s got a better chance of coming to fruition.

Assumingly, someone else will replace him on the project.

A new “Mortal Kombat” movie – the third, counting the two live-action things New Line did – has been in the works for a better part of a decade, with everyone from Mink and attached at different times.
Though Tancharoen’s “Mortal Kombat Legacy” webseries featured the likes of Casper Van Dien and Mark Dacascos, none of the actors were believed to be attached to the on-again off-again on-again off-again feature film take.

Tancharoen announced his departure from the project on Twitter.

The cast of ’90s gem “Clueless” reunited at C2E2 at McCormick Place Saturday afternoon to share memories of working on the now 25-year-old comedy classic.

While a couple of cast members were noticeably absent (specifically, Stacey Dash, who played Dionne, and the late, wonderful Brittany Murphy, who left us in 2009), the 2,800 seat hall did get to spend quality time with Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Breckin Meyer and Donald Faison.

While most of the cast had understandably aged, Rudd seems to be stuck in time.

“I’m 80 years old on the inside.” He pointed to his chest: “In here, pure darkness — and a little moisturizer.”

“They had to knock on Paul’s trailer an hour early because he had to finish sucking the lifeblood out of babies”, said Meyer, who played skateboarder Travis in the film.

While the audience seemed to be gunning for solid word on some sort of sequel, the cast reiterated that the film is  – sadly – going to be rebooted… without them.
