Matt Damon & Ben Affleck's Pearl Street Company To Adopt Inclusion Rider

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are adopting inclusion riders for all future projects at their production company Pearl Street Films.

Last week (end11Mar18), Michael B. Jordan announced his company would be adopting the riders, and on Tuesday, Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni the Head of Strategic Outreach at Pearl Street Films, tweeted Michael stating Ben and Matt would follow suit.

McDormand explained that the term Inclusion Rider refers to an additional clause that actors may insist on including in their contracts to ensure better diversification in film.

She asked for all the female nominees in the room at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to stand, and then said: "Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed". 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.

'We should support this for a billion reasons, but if you can't find a reason to, here's one: it will make movies better'. The topic of diversity and inclusion in Hollywood has gained momentum in recent months and continued following the massive success of Ryan Coogler's Black Panther, in which Jordan stars as the villain.

"On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton and I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all of our projects moving forward", Fanshen wrote. "The Inclusion Rider is an important tool for Hollywood, and other industries, to create workplaces that truly reflect our diverse world", added Kotagal.

'I've been privileged to work with powerful woman & persons of color throughout my career & it's Outlier's mission to continue to create for talented individuals going forward'.
