Hollywood producers Feig, Affleck and Jordan adopt inclusion rider

Hollywood producers Feig, Affleck and Jordan adopt inclusion rider

Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, Pearl Street Films' head of strategic outreach, confirmed that it would use inclusion riders and praised Michael B. Jordan, who announced last week that his own production company would now adopt the policy.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are going to be implementing inclusion riders at their producing company, Pearl Street Films. The move came a week after actress Frances McDorrmand sparked interest and support for the term after she concluded her Oscars best actress acceptance speech by saying, "I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider".

Jordan, everyone's favorite Black Panther sweetie, announced his production company would be adopting the riders as well.

And, you know, speaking to members of that committee, it doesn't look like that one is going to wrap up anytime soon. As mentioned above, it's a messy ending to what could have been a bipartisan probe of Russian election interference.

An inclusion rider is a clause an actor or production company can include in their contracts to ensure more diversity and equality on any project they work on, and before McDormand's speech many had no idea it existed.

The trio haven't been the most inclusive over their time, with Matt Damon making some controversial Twitter comments regarding sexual harassment, and Ben Affleck publicly declaring himself "angry and saddened" at that Weinstein has been accused of harassing and assaulting multiple women. It was originally created by Stacy Smith, the founder and director of The Annenberg Inclusion Initiative.

"Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry", Cox DiGiovanni tweeted.

Accepting the best actress Oscar for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" earlier this month, McDormand said: "We all have stories to tell and projects we need financed. And I think the inclusion rider will have something to do with that".

The producer pair go goodwill hunting.
