Denis Villeneuve shares his thoughts on the difficulty of keeping something secret in Hollywood as he opens up about the role of Anya Taylor-Joy in Dune: Part Two that he wished to keep under wraps till the very last.

In a chat with The Hollywood Reporter, the noted filmmaker said, “I think that Hollywood is the most gossipy town on earth, and I wanted, as an experiment, to see how long we could keep a secret.”

He continued, “We did it. It was a special unit, we went to Africa to shoot with Anya under super-secrecy.”

Adding, “I just loved the idea to keep something a surprise for the audience until the very end; it was like a gift I wanted to keep for the fans.”

It comes after Anya appeared at the fantasy film’s London premiere, sending shockwaves among fans — who have been speculating around an online rumour about her involvement in the movie for quite some time.
