Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman are teaming up for a new Broadway play later this year.
Playbill reports that Craig and Jackman will co-star in Keith Huff’s A Steady Rain.
An official announcement regarding the production has yet to be made, but it is expected to be a top draw during the fall season. James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli will also take up producing duties here as well.
A Steady Rain tells of two seasoned cops whose lifelong friendship is severely tested when a seemingly routine domestic disturbance call results in the death of a young boy. When the horrific truth of the situation is revealed, one of the two must take the blame for the fatal mistake.
The play will mark the Broadway debut for Craig after starring in numerous films, the most recent of which included Quantum of Solace and Defiance.
On the other hand, Jackman is a seasoned stage performer, whose credits include Trevor Nunn’s Oklahoma! at Britian’s National Theatre and award-winning work in productions of Sunset Boulevard and Beauty and the Beast. He has also earned a Tony Award for his work in the musical The Boy From Oz.
A Steady Rain played a six-week sold-out engagement at Chicago Dramatists in fall 2007. The cast and artistic team, headed by director Russ Tutterow, remained intact for the 2008 run at Chicago’s Royal George Theater.
