Chris Pine Deeply Regrets Not Getting ‘Jack Ryan’ Right

Chris Pine doesn’t think Paramount will be releasing a sequel to “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” any time soon.

The titular star of the rejuvenated franchise told Moviefone that the film’s low box office turnout has likely killed its future.

“No, I don’t think it made enough money for that to happen,” Pine said when asked if there have been talks of further “Jack Ryan” adventures. “That’s one of my deep regrets, that we didn’t totally get that right. It’s a great franchise, and if it’s not me, then I hope it gets a fifth life at this point. It’s just great. I love the spy genre. I hope it’s done again and with a great story.”

The spy thriller earned $50.6 million in the U.S. — not even matching its already-low $60 million production budget — and a worldwide take of $135.5 million.

Director Kenneth Branagh had said that he’d be happy to helm other installments since there were so many stories left to tell in the Jack Ryan world.

Pine was the latest actor to take on the famous Tom Clancy character, who has appeared in four other films: “The Hunt for Red October,” “Patriot Games,” “Clear and Present Danger” and “The Sum of All Fears.”
