Films have a script before a director is attached literally all the time, especially when it comes to genre films.
In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find a single film that is currently in production that didn't have writers before a director was hired.
We knew who was writing Star Wars Episode VII months ago. Is it fair to say that J.J Abrams isn't doing any of the hard work?
