Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's production company to add 'inclusion riders'

  • Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are using their platform to make change

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Paul Feig have said they'll adopt Inclusion Riders for their films.

Jordan, Affleck, and Damon have adopted inclusion riders following Frances McDormand's best actress acceptance speech at the Oscars on March 4, where the Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri star closed her remarks by mentioning the term.

An inclusion rider is the idea that people who have negotiating power in the film industry, such as A-list actors, directors, and producers, insist on language in their contracts demanding diversity in both on-screen and behind-the-camera positions.

"We challenge other companies and studios to do the same", says Feig in his tweet.

If you haven't yet read our explainer from the day after the Oscars about what an inclusion rider is, here's the cliff notes.

An Inclusion Rider can be used by a star to enforce diverse cast and crews on their movies.

Actor-producers Matt Damon, left, and Ben Affleck have been working on addressing representation, under the guidance of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative.

Following McDormand's call to action, Michael B. Jordan got the trend going in earnest, formally announcing that he will be using inclusion riders for all forthcoming projects he produces.

But when Pearl Street announced their adoption of the concept Monday, some on social media scoffed.

Damon has previously faced criticism for comments he made about diversity in filmmaking. Onscreen, specifically, the goal is to reach at least 50 percent gender parity, with 40 percent inclusion for people of color, 5 percent L.G.B.T.Q. inclusion, and 20 percent disabled inclusion.
