Action movie hunks Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig are bringing Hollywood glamour to Broadway -- they are teaming up to hit the New York stage for a new play.

The 007 star will make his Broadway debut alongside seasoned theater star Jackman in new drama A Steady Rain.

The play, written by Keith Huff and produced by Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, follows two cops from Chicago whose close friendship is pushed to its limits after becoming involved in a domestic dispute in a poor neighborhood, reports the New York Post.

Craig performed small roles on the London stage before breaking into Hollywood, while X-Men star Jackman won a Tony Award in 2004 for his turn in Broadway musical The Boy from Oz.

A Steady Rain is due to open this fall.
