Hollywood 2018: Oscar Winners Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to Adopt Inclusion Rider

Producing partners and Oscar winners Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (Good Will Hunting) have announced that they will adopt the inclusion rider agreement in all their future production deals through their Pearl Street company.

Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni made the announcement Monday night via Twitter at the South by Southwest Film Festival.

The move came a week after Frances McDormant introduced the term after she concluded her Best Actress Oscar speech saying, “I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider.”

Michael B. Jordan announced on March 7 that he would add the inclusion rider to all projects produced by his company, Outlier Society Productions.

Cox DiGiovanni referred to Jordan in her announcement, saying, “Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry. 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.”
