Matt Damon And Ben Affleck To Add Inclusion Riders On Pearl Street Projects

Pearl Street Films, the production company that Ben Affleck and Matt Damon founded, will now use inclusion riders on future projects.

From the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, actor/producer Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni tweeted,"On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton & I will be adopting the #InclusionRider for all of our projects moving forward".

In a speech at the Oscars, Frances McDormand made mention of the inclusion rider.

At the Oscars earlier this month (March 4), Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri star McDormand used her Best Actress acceptance speech to call for greater equality in the film industry and helped shine a spotlight on the little-known diversity clause.

Jordan had previously confirmed the news on Instagram: 'In support of the women & men who are leading this fight, I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all projects produced by my company Outlier Society.

"Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry", Cox DiGiovanni tweeted.

The concept was developed by Dr Stacy Smith, with a clause requiring the cast and crew to be diverse in order to retain the actor. Invite us into your office in a couple days - or you can come to ours, whichever suits you best - and we'll tell you all about them.

At the Oscars, the Best Actress victor made headlines (and got a lot of people Googling) when she ended her acceptance speech with two words: "inclusion rider".
