According to writers Steven Zeitchik and John Horn of The LA Times several screenwriters have visited Skywalker Ranch to pitch ideas for 2015's Episode VII.
The rumour certainly makes sense, as we know Lucas has plotted the new episodes and production starts within a few short months.
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.
