Chris Pine on 'Jack Ryan' Reboot: "We Didn't Totally Get That Right"
Fans of the spy franchise shouldn't expect to see Pine in the iconic role again
Jack Ryan may be able to take down terrorists, but prevailing at the box office earlier this year proved to be too tough a feat.
Chris Pine was asked in a Moviefone interview if there would be a sequel to Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, which opened Jan. 15 to $15.4 million en route to a $50.6 million domestic haul.
"No, I don’t think it made enough money for that to happen," Pine said about a possible sequel. "That’s one of my deep regrets, that we didn't totally get that right."
Pine added that he still has respect for the franchise and wouldn't have hard feelings if someone else took over the role. Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck have previously played the spy.
"It’s a great franchise, and if it’s not me, then I hope it gets a fifth life at this point," continued Pine, who can currently be seen in Into the Woods. "It’s just great. I love the spy genre. I hope it’s done again and with a great story."
