Sharing details about 'The Twilight Saga's New Moon', actor Michael Welch talks about how Robert Pattinson's Edward is included and what kind of fake mini movie is made for the three-way date scene.

With "" falling into its post-production, little details about the upcoming sequel of "" start to unravel, and apparently actor has more to be shared. After bringing up into the open that the three-way date between Jacob and Bella and Mike will be seen in "New Moon", the 21-year-old reveals how the filmmakers bring Edward back despite the fact that he is largely absent in the novel.

"They figured out a very clever way to get Edward back in the film much more than he is in the book," he unveiled director Chris Weitz and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg's plan to include the fleeing vampire in the movie. "It's more of, like, a hallucination kind of thing." Elaborating more, he said, "In the book, she just hears his voice. In the film, it's more of like a hallucination kind of thing. He will be [in the movie more than the book] for sure."

"The film is called 'Face Punch'," he shared before adding that it won't be a horror movie, but rather "an action film".

Recalling on how they came up with the title, Welch said, "We started out with a few other comical names, but it turned out those were actual films so we couldn't use those titles. I forget the first few titles, but it was like 'Crazy Explosion' - and it turns out, there actually was a 'Crazy Explosion'." He also expressed hopes Weitz will shoot it for real, saying "That'd be interesting - maybe for the DVD, if there's a Face Punch trailer. That's not actually a bad idea."

This time, Edward will leave Bella abruptly, leaving her unguarded from outside threat.
