Adele Lim, a co-writer of the blockbuster hit “Crazy Rich Asians,” announced this week that she will no longer be co-writing the sequel because of a massive pay disparity between her and her co-writer Peter Chiarelli.

Chiarelli was offered between $800,000 and $1 million to write the sequel, while Lim was only offered around $110,000, according to The Hollywood Repoter. Chiarelli offered to split his compensation with Lim, but she still decided to walk off the project, telling the publication, “Pete has been nothing but incredibly gracious, but what I make shouldn’t be dependent on the generosity of the white-guy writer.”

Callie Crossley, host of WGBH News’ Under The Radar, told Boston Public Radio Friday that without Lim, the sequel will lose what people loved about the first film.

“All of the little smart people that are putting this thing together — hello people — it was female focused, it was culturally based, that is the reason we all liked it,” Crossley said. “Now you’ve taken away the woman who was bringing that as her contribution, what do you think is going to happen? They are just arrogant.”
