As the priority-tagged MCU flick of the year, Deadpool 3, gets ready for its theatrical release, it is now time to take note that Maximum Effort was one of the production companies involved in its sequel. The company also collaborated on the first two Deadpool films’ marketing campaigns. Currently, as part of the deal with Paramount Pictures, Reynolds has also been tapped to produce and star in the feature film Boy Band.

Furthermore, Reynolds’ upcoming movie with John Krasinski, IF, is also a Paramount Pictures film which he is both producing and starring in.
