Chris Pine has admitted he "deeply regrets" not making 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' as successful as it could have been
Chris Pine doesn't think 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' made enough money to get a sequel.
The 34-year-old actor portrayed the titular character in the action thriller this year - which is said to have made a $50 million domestic taking, $10 million less than its budget - and admits he didn't feel the movie was as good as it could've been which will always be one of his "deepest regrets".
Speaking about the possibility of a sequel, he said: "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."
Despite being downbeat about his chances of portraying the former CIA analyst in a follow-up movie, Pine insists he would love to see the character played again.
He added to MovieFone: "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 character was created by author Tom Clancy and was previously played by Ben Affleck in 2002 movie 'The Sum of All Fears' as well as by Harrison Ford in 'Patriot Games' in 1992 and again in 'Clear and Present Danger' in 1994.
