Ben Affleck And Matt Damon Are Adopting Inclusion Riders
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s production company, Pearl Street Films, is adopting inclusion riders for their all their projects going forward.
An inclusion rider is a way for actors and actresses to guarantee projects they work on have a level of diversity, onscreen and off-camera, that matches the location setting of the project. It was highly publicized after Frances McDormand’s speech at the Oscars, where she demanded other actors to include them in contracts.
“Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry,” Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, head of strategic outreach at Pearl Street Films tweeted in response to Jordan on Monday night. “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.”
