What a power couple.
Just because he’s left the role of James Bond doesn’t mean that Daniel Craig is slowing down. In one of his first roles post-No Time to Die, it has been announced that the actor is set to star alongside Ruth Negga in a production of Macbeth on Broadway, produced by Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson and directed by Tony Award-winner Sam Gold.
Craig will play the titular character, while Negga is set to make her Broadway debut as Lady Macbeth when the production begins previews at the Lyceum Theatre in New York City on March 29, 2022, before officially opening to the public on April 28. The production will mark Craig’s third time on a Broadway stage, having starred in A Steady Rain in 2009, and Betrayal in 2013. (He also starred in Othello as Iago at the off-Broadway New York Theatre Workshop in 2016, directed by Gold.) Additional casting is set to be announced at a later date, rounding out the court of Macbeth and his enemies.
