New creative director Amy Hennig 'thrilled' to bring Todd Stashwick on board
American actor and writer Todd Stashwick has joined Amy Hennig at Visceral Games as the co-writer on EA's new Star Wars game.
The news was revealed by Uncharted writer Hennig on Twitter, who was brought in by EA last month as creative director on the unannounced project.
Hennig said she was thrilled to have Stashwick on board as he knew Star Wars “inside-out and sideways”.
Stashwick is best known for co-creating web comic Devil Inside and his acting roles in a number of US TV shows including Heroes and The Riches.
.@ToddStashwick is a huge gamer, knows Star Wars inside-out and sideways, and is a brilliant writer to boot. How lucky am I?— Amy Hennig (@amy_hennig) April 11, 2014
As devout gaming/star wars geeks @amy_hennig and I plan on writing a game we want to play. We will be our harshest critics.— Todd Stashwick (@ToddStashwick) April 12, 2014
Thanks everybody for the kind words and support on the Star Wars project. I’m over the moon…wait…that’s no moon...— Todd Stashwick (@ToddStashwick) April 12, 2014
