Chris Pine reveals Jack Ryan regret

Chris Pine has confessed to having "deep regrets" about the Jack Ryan reboot he starred in.

The Into The Woods actor took on the role of Tom Clancy's CIA agent hero in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, directed by and co-starring Sir Kenneth Branagh, alongside Keira Knightley. But the film, released in January 2014, made a disappointing 135.5 million dollars (£87 million) worldwide.

Chris was asked by if he expects to reprise the role in a sequel.

The Horrible Bosses 2 star replied: "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."

Branagh has previously said that he'd be happy to direct a sequel since there were so many Jack Ryan stories left in the series.

Jack Ryan has previously been played by Ben Affleck in The Sum Of All Fears, Alec Baldwin in The Hunt For Red October and twice by Harrison Ford in Patriot Games and Clear And Present Danger.
