“Star Trek 3” is a go, but probably not for “Jack Ryan 2.”
During an interview with Moviefone for “Into the Woods,” actor Chris Pine talked about his reprisal in a J.J. Abrams-less “Star Trek 3” and the chances for a sequel for “Jack Ryan.”
Pine indicated the Star Trek project could be shooting next year, but he hasn’t read any script for it yet.
He was just excited to reunite with the cast for production.
“Yeah... I mean, I just want to see my friends, I want to work with my friends. We have such a great time together. I can't wait to see what ridiculousness they throw us into. But above and beyond anything, they're just a great bunch. We laugh a lot,” he said.
As for “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” he expressed his disappointment in himself.
He explained, “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.”
The film grossed $85 million on a $60 million production budget, but fell below expectations.
Pine stars in “Into the Woods” and “Horrible Bosses 2,” which are both currently playing in theaters.
