Daniel Craig and wife Rachel Weisz are to star in a play together. The couple - who married in a surprise ceremony in June 2011 - are reportedly in secret negotiations to star in a production of Harold Pinter's Betrayal
on New York's Broadway. The play, which was written in 1978, uses reverse chronology to tell the story of publisher Robert, whose wife Emma - who runs an art gallery - is having an affair with his friend Jerry, a literary agent. It is not yet known who is being touted for the role of Jerry. According to the Daily Mail
, The Graduate
director Mike Nichols - who presided over last season's Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman
, which starred Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield - is
wanted to helm the production.
The play would mark Rachel's Broadway debut, though she previously appeared in a critically-acclaimed version of A Streetcar Named Desire
in London's West End in 2009. The same year, Daniel took to the New York stage with Les Misérables
actor Hugh Jackman in A Steady Rain
It is unclear how long Betrayal
would run, or when it would begin, but the 44-year-old actor will be required for pre-production on the 24th James Bond movie next year.
