Chloe Sevigny and Katie Holmes may appear in a Broadway play together.

Both actresses have been approached to star in an upcoming production of William Mastrosimone's drama 'Extremeties', which tells the story of a woman who "turns the tables" on a man who tries to rape her, but then struggles with her two roomates to decide what to do with him.

Chloe, who has appeared in two off-Broadway productions before, is still weighing up whether or not to accept the role.

The 36-year-old 'Big Love' star said: "I was reading it and I'm kind of seeing how the cast is gonna pan out. I know the director is great but I feel like the cast has gotta be real strong. And it's such a commitment."

A spokesperson for Katie - who appeared on stage in Arthur Miller's 'All My Sons' in 2008 - confirmed she has been approached for a role.

Producers have also talked to Matt Dillon about taking on the leading male role of the would-be rapist but a spokeswoman for the 'Crash' actor has revealed he will not be accepting the part due to a scheduling conflict with another project.

'Extremeties' is likely to debut on Broadway either this season or during the 2011-12 season, with Kenny Leon directing.

Susan Sarandon and Farrah Fawcett have both starred in past productions of the play, with Farrah also appearing in the 1986 film version.
