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?

Never downplayed Snyder about anything. I merely stated who was responsible for the movie getting of the ground in the first place. That certainly wasnt Snyder.
