Amy Hennig Names Co-Writer for Visceral Star Wars Project

The ex-Naughty Dog writer has recruited a friend to work alongside her on the as-yet unannounced Star Wars project.

The involvement of Uncharted scribe Amy Hennig has got a lot of people interested in Visceral's upcoming Star Wars project.

Now, Hennig has taken the opportunity to announce that she will be collaborating on the project with her friend Todd Stashwick, who will be acting as co-writer.

Stashwick is a veteran actor as well as a writer, and is known for his roles as Eli in Heroes, Dale Malloy in The Riches and Father Kieran in The Originals. His voice also made an appearance in the Uncharted 4 trailer from a while back, suggesting he's involved with Hennig's ex-employers in some capacity or another as well as Visceral.

This is not, to our knowledge, what Hennig and Stashwick are working on. But oh gosh, imagine if it was...

Stashwick is excited to be involved with the project, as he cites the 1977 original Star Wars movie as being, in his opinion, the best movie ever, and one that "profoundly shaped [his] life" according to an exchange with a fan on Twitter.

"As devout gaming/Star Wars geeks [Amy] and I plan on writing a game we want to play," he tweeted. "We will be our harshest critics. I’m over the moon…wait…that’s no moon..."
