The news seems to be getting better and better for the forthcoming Star Wars project from EA.

We were delighted to hear back when that Visceral Games, the Dead Space studio, were to develop the game.

Then last week it was announced that the brilliant former Naughty Dog creative director, Amy Hennig joined the unannounced Star Wars project.

And now we learn that another Star Wars fanatic, writer and actor Todd Stashwick, will be co-writing.

Amy Hennig @amy_hennig Tweeted the news:

Thrilled to announce that my friend @ToddStashwick will be joining me as co-writer on the Star Wars project for @VisceralGames @EA !

To which @ToddStashwick added:

Todd Stashwick @ToddStashwick
I’ve partnered with someone who’s love of Star Wars rivals mine. It shaped @amy_hennig & my youth. We’re thrilled to play in that galaxy

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.

You might actually recognise Stashwick for his acting roles, having appeared in Justified; Curb Your Enthusiasm and Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

He’s also done voice acting work and will appear in the next chapter of Uncharted reports GamesIndustry.
