Matt Damon & Ben Affleck Pledge to Support Inclusion Riders in Future Deals

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck just announced that their production company Pearl Street will be adopting an inclusion rider agreement in all their future deals.

The company’s Head of Strategic Outreach Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni took to her Twitter to make the announcement during the SXSW Festival.

“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,” Fanshen wrote.

An inclusion rider is a contract addendum that requires studios to hire a diverse crew and/or cast for a project, which Frances McDormand brought attention to during the 2018 Oscars ceremony.

Her announcement comes after Michael B. Jordan revealed that he would add the inclusion rider to all projects produced by his company, Outlier Society Productions.
