Matt Damon And Ben Affleck commit to inclusion riders after Oscars appeal

Inclusion Rider

Under their Pearl Street Films banner, Affleck and Damon have produced films such as Manchester By the Sea, Jason Bourne, and Live By Night, among other features and television series, and are now working on Matt Reeves' The Batman (with Affleck still set to star as the Caped Crusader) and Affleck's remake of Witness for the Prosecution.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, who jointly run the production company Pearl Street Company, are reportedly set to include the inclusion rider in their future projects.

Inclusion riders came to the public attention after Frances McDormand closed her Oscar acceptance speech with the phrase, "two words - inclusion rider".

Black Panther actor Michael B Jordan later pledged to insert an inclusion rider clause into his future movie contracts, with Cox DiGiovanni now sharing Affleck and Damon's announcement in response to that news.

The move comes just over a week after McDormand urged other actors to ask for inclusion riders as a way to ensure gender and racial diversity in films.

Michael B. Jordan attends the European Premiere of "Black Panther" at Eventim Apollo on February 8, 2018 in London.

"@michaelb4jordan Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry".

"For those of you asking about the #InclusionRider, it's created to ensure equitable hiring in supportive roles for women, POC, the LGBT community, & people w/disabilities", the tweet said. She's also on the board of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, the think tank housed at the University of Southern California that was, conveniently, founded by Dr. Stacy L. Smith, the co-originator of the official inclusion rider. Specifics of the rider are also undisclosed at this time.
