Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz star together in Harold Pinter's Betrayal
Friday 05 April 2013
Husband and wife Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz will play an adulterous couple on stage on Broadway.
The pair, who married in secret in 2011, will star in a production of Harold Pinter's Betrayal which was inspired by the playwright's affair with broadcaster Joan Bakewell.
Weisz will play Emma, who is married to Craig's Robert, but is having an affair with Jerry, played by Rafe Spall.
The production opens in New York in November.
007 actor Craig is fiercely protective of his private life and rarely speaks about his marriage to The Constant Gardener star.
In 2011, he criticised celebrities who "sell" themselves and then make demands about their private lives.
"Look I'm in love, I'm very happy. And that is as far as I'm prepared to go," he told GQ.
"Life is long, life goes wrong and I don't want to say something now that might be thrown back later."
