London - 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 newspaper, '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 Miserables' 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. - Bang Showbiz
