Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's Production Company Will Adopt "Inclusion Riders"

13 March 2018

" Two days later, Black Panther thirst trap Michael B. Jordan announced he'd be adding an inclusion rider to future projects at his production company, Outlier Society".

While some are applauding Affleck and Damon pushing for more inclusivity on their own projects, others may give them the side eye for their own roles and past comments and alleged actions on inclusivity and sexual harassment.

The producing partners will use the riders, which allow actors to require diversity in the cast and crew of a film production as part of their contracts, in future projects through their company Pearl Street Films.

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.

The Boston-bred stars are heeding a call made by actress Frances McDormand at the Oscars last week, who name-checked the riders during her Best Actress acceptance speech.

Michael B. Jordan attends the European Premiere of "Black Panther" at Eventim Apollo on February 8, 2018 in London.

"Franssen's leadership in developing and rolling out the inclusion rider began the first day we met in February 2016".

"For those of you asking about the #InclusionRider, it's created to ensure equitable hiring in supportive roles for women, POC, the LGBT community, & people w/disabilities", the tweet said. The inclusion clause aims to promote diversity in casting and crew memberships.
