Matt Damon, Ben Affleck Production Company to Adopt France McDormand’s ‘Inclusion Rider’


Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are adopting inclusion riders for projects made through their Pearl Street Films, according to head of strategic outreach at the production company, Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni.ProjectGreenlight-1

“On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, @BenAffleck, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton & I will be adopting the #InclusionRider for all of our projects moving forward,” Cox DiGiovanni tweeted Monday, responding to Michael B. Jordan’s tweet from last week in which he announced that his production company, Outlier Society, would also begin adopting inclusion riders.

An inclusion rider is a reference to the belief by some that there should be requirements in contracts that provide for gender and racial diversity.

A request for comment from Affleck and Damon was not immediately returned.
