Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures at the Producers Guild of America for producers Simon Kinberg, Ryan Reynolds, and Lauren Shuler Donner. With all of this awards buzz in the air for the film, Reynolds himself has debuted a “For Your Consideration” promo for the film which you can check out in the player below!
