Casting director Chris Marazzo has confirmed to Battlefront 3.net that he has been working closely with Lucasarts on not only Battlefront 3, but the 2006 release of Star Wars Empire at War: Forces of Corruption.
Rumors started circulating this week regarding the project, so BF3.net contacted Marazzo and received this reply:
“Thanks for getting in touch. The Original Title was Battlefront 3 but it evolved into Star Wars Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. However Battlefront 3 is also in development. It was by far the most fun and coolest casting I ever worked on.”
Marazzo also told the site that he would try and send over some Battlefront 3 storyboards “by the end of the week”. If you look at his portfolio, it states that he has “cast over 200 Commercials and various projects in NY and LA, including most recently STAR WARS: Battlefront 3 with Lucas Arts”.
