Matt Damon, Ben Affleck's Production Company to Adopt Inclusion Rider

However, the company could possibly apply the inclusion rider to future projects like "The Batman" and Affleck's "Witness for the Prosecution".

Affleck and Damon have been relatively quiet in recent conversations regarding diversity and women's rights in the entertainment industry after they both found themselves at the center of their own separate controversies.

The Head of Strategic Outreach for the two actors' production company Pearl Street, Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, revealed that inclusion riders will be a part of all future film projects. An inclusion rider, as we all discovered on Oscars night, is a clause that an actor can insist be added to their contract. 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.

Cox DiGiovanni referred to Jordan in her announcement, saying, "Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry".

The heightened buzz prompted the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, founded by University of Southern California professor Stacy Smith, who floated the idea of inclusion riders in 2016, to tweet out a quick explainer on the term.
