â€œStar Trek 3â€ is a go, but probably not for â€œJack Ryan 2.â€
During an interview with Moviefone for â€œInto the Woods,â€ actor Chris Pine talked about his reprisal in a J.J. Abrams-less â€œStar Trek 3â€ and the chances for a sequel for â€œJack Ryan.â€
Pine indicated the Star Trek project could be shooting next year, but he hasnâ€™t read any script for it yet.
He was just excited to reunite with the cast for production.
â€œYeah… 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,â€ he said.
As for â€œJack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,â€ he expressed his disappointment in himself.
He explained, â€œNo. 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.â€
The film grossed $85 million on a $60 million production budget, but fell below expectations.
Pine stars in â€œInto the Woodsâ€ and â€œHorrible Bosses 2,â€ which are both currently playing in theaters.
