Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Vow to Embrace the Inclusion Rider Clause

Michael B. Jordan Adopts an Inclusion Rider for His Company Matt Damon And Ben Affleck To Add Inclusion Riders On Pearl Street Projects
Rosie Leonard | 14 March, 2018, 00:40

McDormand ended her powerful speech, "I have two words to leave you with tonight, ladies and gentleman: inclusion rider", and took the opportunity to explain what it means during an interview in the backstage press room.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have agreed that inclusion riders will be a part of all their future Pearl Street production deals.

The news was announced on Twitter by the company's head of strategic outreach Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni in response to a tweet from Michael B. Jordan in which he announced his own production company would be adopting the rider. The term reached wide public consciousness earlier this month at the 90th Academy Awards, when best-actress victor Frances McDormand noted it in her acceptance speech. 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.

Jordan had previously confirmed the news on Instagram: 'In support of the women & men who are leading this fight, I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all projects produced by my company Outlier Society. The term refers to an optional addition to a contract that requires that the cast and crew on a film or TV project meet a certain level of diversity. "And I think the inclusion rider will have something to do with that".

Rose McGowan claims in her autobiography fearless that she told Affleck that Weinstein had raped her when they were working together in 1997.

Rose McGowan claimed that she told Affleck immediately after Weinstein allegedly raped her at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997, but he went forward with statements about Weinstein in the fall, claiming that he was not aware that the producer had allegedly preyed on women. Any accounts to the contrary are false.
