  • Matt Damon and Ben Affleck follow Michael B. Jordan and adopt inclusion riders

The two are founders of Pearl Street Films, a production company responsible for films like Manchester By The Sea, as well as the upcoming The Batman, which Ben Affleck will definitely be in. 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.

Pearl Street Films, the production company that Ben Affleck and Matt Damon founded, will now use inclusion riders on future projects. While the concept of inclusion riders has been around since 2014, it didn't start to get widespread attention until McDormand's Oscar acceptance speech-and even McDormand said that she only found out what inclusion riders were a week before winning her Oscar.
