Michael B. Jordan Adopts an Inclusion Rider for His Company

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are the latest Hollywood power-players to embrace inclusion riders, the diversity-promoting clauses recently thrust into the national spotlight by actress Frances McDormand, who championed them in her Academy Awards acceptance speech earlier this month.

Filmmaker duo/best buds forever Ben Affleck and Matt Damon today announced they'd be adopting inclusion riders for all their future production deals, off the back of Frances McDormand's Oscar speech bringing the concept into the mainstream.

Black Panther actor Michael B Jordan later pledged to insert an inclusion rider clause into his future movie contracts, with Cox DiGiovanni now sharing Affleck and Damon's announcement in response to that news.


"There has always been available, to everybody that does a negotiation on a film, an inclusion rider, which means that you can ask for and/or demand at least 50 percent diversity in not only the casting but also the crew", McDormand explained to reporters on March 4.

No word on whether Affleck and Damon are also applying an inclusion rider to every acting project, or only their production company. 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.

"Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed". Invite us into your office in a couple days - or you can come to ours, whichever suits you best - and we'll tell you all about them.


Both Affleck and Damon have been embroiled in the Harvey Weinstein scandal and #MeToo movement. "I have no knowledge about anything Rose did or claimed to have done". I was brand new to Hollywood.

He said: "There's a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?"
