Matt Damon, Ben Affleck's production company Pearl Street to adopt inclusion rider in future projects
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have announced that their production company Pearl Street will be adopting an inclusion rider agreement in all their future deals
Los Angeles: Hollywood stars Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have announced that their production company Pearl Street will be adopting an inclusion rider agreement in all their future deals.
The inclusion clause aims to promote diversity in casting and crew memberships. The move came a week 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."
The announcement was made via Twitter by actor-producer Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni.
