Josh Brolin (“Dune,” “Avengers: Endgame”) is reportedly in negotiations to star in “Barbarian” filmmaker Zach Cregger’s next horror thriller feature “Weapons” at New Line.

He replaces “The Last of Us” and “The Mandalorian” star Pedro Pascal who was cast in the project back in May but has had to bow out due to scheduling conflicts involving his roles in the second season of “The Last of Us” and Marvel’s “Fantastic Four” amongst others.

Pascal signed for the project when shooting was slated for the Fall last year, but the strikes caused the movie to push its start of production into this year.

Cregger penned and is directing the film. Whilst plot specifics are under wraps, it is called an “interrelated, multi-story horror epic” with a tone akin to Paul Thomas Anderson’s 1999 ensemble feature “Magnolia”.

The film was the subject of a major bidding war last year as Hollywood studios and streamers fought for the chance to work with Cregger. The project will mark Brolin’s first true horror film.

Cregger will also produce alongside his “Barbarian” producers Roy Lee, J.D. Lifshitz and Raphael Margules. Miri Yoon also produces.
