Hugh Jackman, who recently starred in the title role of action film “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and Daniel Craig, the most recent British double-agent in “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace,” are planning to take their acts to the Broadway stage later this year in a new play, the New York Post reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed sources. 

They will star together in a drama called, “A Steady Rain,” about two Chicago cops whose long-term friendship is put to the test. It is being produced by Barbara Broccoli, who also produced Craig’s 007 roles in “Quantum of Solace” and “Casino Royale.”

The Post said Jackman will return to Broadway after his hit 2004 Tony Award-winning role in “The Boy craig1From Oz” and Craig, who was trained in British theater, will make his Broadway debut.

Jackman already is beloved by New York’s theater community and has hosted the Tony awards several times. A spokesman for Jackman could not immediately confirm the report as the Australian actor is away promoting his latest film and a spokeswoman for Craig was unavailable for comment.
