Screenwriters Pitch Episode VII Ideas

Posted By Dustin on November 2, 2012

The LA Times reports that, according to their sources, very well-known screenwriters have visited Skywalker Ranch to pitch their ideas for Star Wars Episode VII. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that brainstorming session!

Here's a quick snippet:

In the months before Disney announced it would acquire "Star Wars" studio Lucasfilm, several different screenwriters paid visits to Lucasfilm's Northern California compound to pitch George Lucas and his co-chair Kathleen Kennedy their ideas for the new live-action installment, the series' seventh, according to a person familiar with the talks who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to talk about them. The screenwriters were pitching ideas for a new story, not ones adapted from existing "Star Wars" books.

The person did not reveal the identities of the people who had met with Lucas and Kennedy but said they were well-known screenwriters with experience creating big-budget Hollywood films.
