Matt Damon, Ben Affleck will support inclusion rider in future deals”

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are pledging to do their part to boost diversity in the entertainment industry.

"On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton and I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all of our projects moving forward", Fanshen wrote.

In her post, Fanshen praised Jordans move.

The so-called Inclusion Rider has forced its way into the film industry's lexicon following McDormand's emotional acceptance speech after winning Best Actress in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri at the Oscars. 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. "Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight".

Two Broke Girls creator Whitney Cummings explained to us all non-movie folk what it was on Twitter, saying: 'An inclusion rider is something actors put into their contracts to ensure gender and racial equality in hiring on movie sets. Invite us into your office in a couple days - or you can come to ours, whichever suits you best - and we'll tell you all about them. She's also on the board of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, the think tank housed at the University of Southern California that was, conveniently, founded by Dr. Stacy L. Smith, the co-originator of the official inclusion rider.

"There has always been available, to everybody that does a negotiation on a film, an inclusion rider, which means that you can ask for and/or demand at least 50 percent diversity in not only the casting but also the crew", McDormand explained to reporters on March 4. Ever since she mentioned the two words - Inclusion Rider - things appear to be changing with several stars coming forward in support of it.
