Daniel Craig to work with Rachel Weisz

New York - 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.
