Comic and TV script man Todd Stashwick is the latest addition to the Star Wars squad. Joining Amy Hennig, he’ll be working on Visceral’s upcoming Star Wars game.
Todd Stashwick joins as co-writer for the Star Wars project. You may well know him as an actor in roles on The Riches and Heroes, but he’s also a dab hand with a pen, having co-created the comic Devil Inside, as well as writing scripts for SyFy. In a tweet Hennig said she was “thrilled” to reveal that Stashwick was joining her.

Amy Hennig – previously of Naughty Dog – announced just days ago that she was leaving her position at the PlayStation developer to head up the new Visceral project as creative director. She previously acted as creative director on the ever-entertaining Uncharted series.
Neither Hennig, Stashwick, or Visceral have disclosed any information on what this new Star Wars game will be. Possibilities are endless of course: prequel, original, or sequel trilogy? Expanded universe? With Hennig’s history, will the Uncharted-in-space Star Wars 1313 be making a comeback? Feel free to speculate until further details make the jump to lightspeed.
