Michael B. Jordan Adopts an Inclusion Rider for His Company

Affleck and Damon's decision to support the idea was announced on Twitter by Fanshen Cox DiGiovani, a senior executive at their Pearl Street production company.

It comes after Three Billboards star Frances McDormand issued a rallying cry to Hollywood as she collected her Oscar for Best Actress, telling the audience: "I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider".

Under their Pearl Street Films banner, Affleck and Damon have produced films such as Manchester By the Sea, Jason Bourne, and Live By Night, among other features and television series, and are now working on Matt Reeves' The Batman (with Affleck still set to star as the Caped Crusader) and Affleck's remake of Witness for the Prosecution. "On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, Ben Afflect, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton & I will be adopting the #InclusionRider for all of our projects moving forward".

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's production company Pearl Street has confirmed they will now adopt inclusion riders for all future feature films.
