Daniel Craig and his Oscar-winning wife Rachel Weisz are in "guarded" talks to star in a Broadway production of Harold Pinter's Betrayal, according to the U.K.'s Daily Mail. Should the production go through as planned, Craig would take on the role of publisher Robert, while Weisz would play his wife Emma.
Director Mike Nichols, who recently nabbed his 10th Tony for the Broadway revival of Death Of A Salesman starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield, is wanted to helm the production. The play would mark Weisz's Broadway debut.
Betrayal uses reverse chronology to tell the story of Robert, whose wife, Emma, is having an affair with his friend Jerry, a literary agent. Kristin Scott Thomas, Douglas Henshall and Ben Miles will lead a West End production of the show in May.
Craig made his Broadway debut in 2009's A Steady Rain. He is most well-known for his role as James Bond in Skyfall, Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale. Craig's other film credits include The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Defiance, The Golden Compass, Munich, Layer Cake and Road to Perdition.
Weisz starred as Blanche DuBois in the 2009 West End production of A Streetcar Named Desire. She won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Tessa Quayle in The Constant Gardener. Weisz's other film credits include The Bourne Legacy, The Lovely Bones, The Fountain, Constantine, About a Boy and The Mummy.
