Director Paul Feig has become the latest filmmaker to adopt inclusion riders for all of his projects following Oscar victor Frances McDormand's call to action.

"I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider", Frances McDormand said during her Oscar acceptance speech.

"Thrilled to announce that Feigco Entertainment is officially adopting an #inclusionrider for all our film and TV productions moving forward", he wrote on Twitter. "We challenge other companies and studios to do the same".

The contract clause, meant to ensure that producers hire a diverse crew in front and even behind scene, considering race, gender, and sexual orientation, was highlighted at the Oscars by actress Frances McDormand. The topic of diversity and inclusion in Hollywood has gained momentum in recent months and continued following the massive success of Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther". He has drawn distinction as one of the best directors of female led films in the industry and is famous for making great films with women including The Heat, Spy, Bridesmaids, and Ghostbusters.

Feig joins Michael B. Jordan's company and Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's company in adopting a rider. He also thanked Stacy Smith, who was the first to bring the idea of an inclusion rider to national attention in 2014.
