    Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz to Star in Broadway ‘Betrayal’
    Producer Scott Rudin has lined up his latest star-heavy Broadway revival, tapping Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz to appear in a fall production of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” directed by Mike Nichols.

    Show re-teams the director (“Spamalot”) and the producer (“The Book of Mormon”), also behind last season’s Nichols-helmed revival of “Death of a Salesman.” That limited-run staging logged powerhouse B.O. and won Tonys for play revival and for director.

    Craig, too, has a track record with breaking box office records on the Rialto. His last stage stint in Gotham, co-starring with Hugh Jackman in “A Steady Rain” in 2009, proved a major moneymaker.

    It’ll be a Broadway debut, meanwhile, for Craig’s wife, Weisz. She won raves plus an Olivier in 2010 for her perf in a London production of “A Streetcar Named Desire.”

    Craig and Weisz will star with Rafe Spall (“Life of Pi”) in Pinter’s 1978 play, which tells a story of marital infidelity in reverse chronological order. Title was last seen on Broadway in a 2000 production that starred Liev Schreiber and Juliette Binoche.

    Design team for the new production will include Ian MacNeil (sets), Ann Roth (costumes), Brian MacDevitt (lights) and Scott Lehrer (sound). Show plays a 14-week run that begins previews Oct. 1 ahead of a Nov. 3 opening at the Barrymore Theater.

    Finally! Welcome back to Broadway, Danny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chariez

    Confirmed? If so, that is something really awesome. Talented isn’t the word for them.

  • Launa

    @FAN:
    Whyyyyyyyy? They should release it on DVD or something!

  • Ash

    Oh my goodness! I need to see this.

  • Makie

    @kelly: @an:

    Actually it was Daren, Rachel’s Ex who cheated with Natalie Portman but of course facts don’t matter to a troll with different user names looking for a problem.

    Is that right Kelly= An.

  • Imitation

    Both of them cheated on their previous partners while they were working on Dream House, so it is really hilarious to see them doing this play together. Life imitating art on the most basic level.

  • Ted

    @Imitation:

    It was confirmed that Rachel did not start Daniel until after production wrapped.

    And yes, it’s one person under different names doing the bashing and crying about cheating.

  • Karen

    Smell a lot like Tony Award! Go, Daniel, Rachel!!!! You are easily the most beautifully talented couple in Hollywood!!!

  • to nit-picky crazy old woman

    @Imitation: you’ve been grumbling long enough, eh? you’re a big grudge holder or you have one-track mind. i really did lol at you expected satsuki got pregnant when ella became 19 years old. you have no wise brains, so you can never avoid to fix the idea or discernment as a ‘biased view’ or ‘obsession’ based on the selfish interpretation. pathetic.
