Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz Teaming up For Play

Friday, February 8, 2013

DANIEL Craig and Rachel Weisz are teaming up for a play.

The couple — who tied the knot 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 newspaper, 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.
