Josh Brolin Cut From George Clooney's Upcoming Film 'Suburbicon'

Josh Brolin had to unfortunately be cut out of the new movie directed by George Clooney, Suburbicon.

In a statement, George told EW that Josh‘s scenes were the funniest in the whole movie, but they just didn’t work.

“We shot a couple of scenes with Josh [playing] a baseball coach that are really really funny,” George told EW. “But after we did our first screening, the one thing that became really clear to me was that [the scenes] let the air out of the balloon, in terms of the tension in the film. I had to write him this awful note where I just said, ‘You’re not going to believe it. but these scenes really don’t work any more.’ He felt bad, and he thought maybe something went wrong, and I said, ‘I’m sending you the scenes, so you can see, they’re actually the two funniest scenes in the movie.’ I remember sitting there with the editor going, ‘F——-ck! I can’t believe this!’ But I’ve sort of been in the same situation. I did a bunch of scenes in Thin Red Line and then got a call from Terry [Malick], saying, ‘We’re cutting out everything except the very last scene.’ I was like, ‘Please cut me completely out of the movie! Don’t leave me in one scene!’ But, [on Suburbicon], it is one of those where we were just, like, ‘There was no option.’ He was so great in the film. I never like talking about those kind of things because it can be really unfair to an actor, except to say he was just absolutely great in the movie.”

Suburbicon stars Matt Damon and Julianne Moore and will hit theaters on October 27. Watch the trailer if you missed it!
