Ben Affleck And Matt Damon's Production Company Adopts Inclusion Rider

Ben Affleck And Matt Damon's Production Company Adopts 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.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck will be adopting an inclusion rider in all future projects, the head of strategic outreach for their Pearl Street Films production company announced on Twitter Monday.

Last week, actor Michael B. Jordan ("Creed", "Black Panther") said he would adopt an inclusion rider for all projects produced by his production company.

Actress Frances McDormand brought attention to inclusion riders when, earlier this month, she concluded her Best Actress Oscar acceptance speech with, "I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider".

The Twitter post by Cox DiGiovanni praised Jordan's move.

The clause, which can be added to actors' contracts at their request, has been around since 2016 and was co-created by University of Southern California communications professor Dr. Stacy Smith, civil rights and employment practice attorney Kalpana Kotagal as well as Cox DiGiovanni.

"There has always been available, to everybody that does a negotiation on a film, an inclusion rider, which means that you can ask for and/or demand at least 50 percent diversity in not only the casting but also the crew", McDormand explained to reporters on March 4. Specifics of the rider are also undisclosed at this time.
