These guys really have zero experience and they're co-writing a $170million blockbuster? This does not inspire confidence.
They are buddies with Orci who has the experience. You don't need to have already written scripts (or better: sold scripts) to write a big budget film script. What counts is the ideas and drafts they discussed with Orci & Co. People talk to each other.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
