Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's production company to add 'inclusion riders'

Michael B. Jordan Adopts an Inclusion Rider for His Company

While the concept of inclusion riders has been around since 2014, it didn't start to get widespread attention until McDormand's Oscar acceptance speech-and even McDormand said that she only found out what inclusion riders were a week before winning her Oscar.

Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni made the announcement on Monday, March 12, via Twitter in response to Michael B. Jordan, whose production company, Outlier Society, has also made the decision to do the same.

Academy Award winners and producing partners Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are adopting an inclusion rider in their Pearl Street Films contracts, in an effort to promote more racial and gender equality in Hollywood.

Paul Feig is the latest filmmaker to adopt an inclusion rider for his projects that are set to be produced under his banner, Feigco Entertainment.

She said in a reply to Michael B Jordan: 'Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry. The news was announced during SXSW, with the move being welcomed by Stacy Smith of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative.

If you haven't yet read our explainer from the day after the Oscars about what an inclusion rider is, here's the cliff notes.

Early Tuesday, "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig followed suit saying on Twitter that his company is also going forward with the inclusion rider for all film and television productions. An inclusion rider is a way for actors and actresses to guarantee projects they work on have a level of diversity, onscreen and off-camera, that matches the location setting of the project. McDormand said. "Because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed".

The producer pair go goodwill hunting.
