Ben Affleck And Matt Damon Production Company Adopts Inclusion Rider

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are the latest movie stars to commit to inclusion riders.

Cox DiGiovanni had previously helped to create the inclusion rider clause recently popularised by Frances McDormand at the Oscars.

On Oscar night TheWrap obtained the inclusion rider document, which we wrote about and explained at length here.

Five days later, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's production company Pearl Street Films have retweeted and responded to Jordan's statement.

Frances McDormand gives her acceptance speech at the 90th Annual Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre on March 4, 2018 in Hollywood, Calif.


Actor Michael B Jordan joined the movement last week when he announced he would add an inclusion rider for all projects created by his Outlier Society Productions banner.

An inclusion rider essentially means that any given project must be representative of the world outside it. Film crews and casts are overwhelmingly white and male, and these riders, in theory, make sure at least 50% of the cast and crew are diverse.

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

Cox DiGiovanni referred to Jordan in her announcement, saying, "Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry". This left plenty of people asking "inclusion wha t?".

Google searches for "inclusion rider" spiked in the wake of McDormand's speech and there were thousands of tweets mentioning the term in the 20 minutes after her speech concluded. Specifics of the rider are also undisclosed at this time.
