Chris Pine is not happy about his work on Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit which was released early in the year.
In Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, “Jack Ryan, as a young covert CIA analyst, uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack.”
The movie did not do well at the box office, only grossing $135.5 million worldwide, and Pine blamed the mixed reviews and bad box office figures on his performance.
“I don’t think [Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit] made enough money for that [a sequel] to happen,” he said. “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.”
Ryan has been played by four actors including Pine, Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, and Ben Affleck.
