One step forward, two steps back?
Amy Schumer has undoubtedly been one of the most sought after names in comedy this year, but by the looks of her paychecks, you wouldn't be able to tell.
Despite her Emmy-winning TV show Inside Amy Schumer, her successful HBO comedy special, a turn as host on Saturday Night Live, and an upcoming book… Amy is reportedly only making about $4.5 million for her next feature film.
While this is a beyond impressive number, especially considering she only made $300,000 for Trainwreck (WTF?!), it's nowhere near the $10 million her people told FOX they wanted.

The raise does come right after the 34-year-old's maybe-BFF Jennifer Lawrence penned that open letter about women being paid as much as men in Hollywood, so we're glad to see it was somewhat effective!
Amy is set to make $9 million for her book, tentatively titled The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, so she's only going to be making half of that for her next blockbuster.
Because obvi way more people read books than watch movies OH WAIT.
Luckily, Amy and her HIGHlarious sis Kim Caramele are executive producing the movie as well as tweaking the script, so at least it's guaranteed to be funny!
What do U think about Amy's latest paycheck??
