"Thrilled to announce that Feigco Entertainment is officially adopting an inclusion rider for all our film and TV productions moving forward. Thank you to @Inclusionists and Stacy L Smith for their guidance and inspiration. We challenge other companies and studios to do the same," Bridesmaids and Spy director Feig wrote on Twitter.

The move came a week and a half after Frances McDormand 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."

Earlier, Michael B Jordan had announced that he would add the inclusion rider to all projects produced by his company, Outlier Society Productions. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have also decided that their Pearl Street company would do the same.
