Los Angeles, Dec 29 (IANS) Actor Chris Pine doesn’t think the producers will make a sequel to the action thriller “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” any time soon.
The titular star of the rejuvenated franchise said that the film’s low box office turnout has likely killed its future, reports variety.com.
Asked if there have been talks of further “Jack Ryan” adventures, the 34-year-old said: “No, I don’t think it made enough money for that to happen. 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,” he added.
The spy thriller minted $50.6 million in the US – not even matching its budget of $60 million – and a worldwide take of $135.5 million.
