Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have adopted inclusion riders

An inclusion rider is the idea that people who have negotiating power in the film industry, such as A-list actors, directors, and producers, insist on language in their contracts demanding diversity in both on-screen and behind-the-camera positions.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have revealed that they will support Inclusion Riders in all future projects.

The whole thing was thrown into the spotlight by Frances McDormand during his Oscar speech, and already Brie Larson and Michael B. Jordan have agreed to take on the clause in all future films.

Three-time European champions, United have made the Champions League quarter-finals just once in the past seven years. United have drawn 22 goalless matches in the Champions League , a record they share with AC Milan.

Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni made the announcement on Monday night via Twitter at the South by Southwest Film Festival.

The Pearl Street Films company will adopt the inclusion rider for all of its projects moving forward, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

Actress Frances McDormand brought attention to inclusion riders when, earlier this month, she concluded her Best Actress Oscar acceptance speech with, "I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider". She's also on the board of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, the think tank housed at the University of Southern California that was, conveniently, founded by Dr. Stacy L. Smith, the co-originator of the official inclusion rider.

"Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry", Cox DiGiovanni wrote.

The heightened interest in inclusion also follows the #MeToo movement, Time's Up initiative and the success of films with diverse casts and crews, such as "Get Out" and "Black Panther".
