Shawn Roberts Talks Wesker in Resident Evil: Afterlife

ON’s talked exclusively to Shawn Roberts (Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead) at the red carpet for Edge of Darkness about his role in Resident Evil: Afterlife. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

“I play Albert Wesker who is head of the Umbrella Corporation who is responsible for the outbreak of the T-virus, or the Uroboros virus,” he told us, hinting that this entry may be extracting elements from Resident Evil 5. “It was nice to be in a position of sitting back playing with my puppets as they were. We finished in December and I guess right now it’s just about making sure the technology gets into the screen so 3-D can happen.”
