Josh Brolin and Peter Dinklage will team up to play an odd family in the new feature ‘Brothers’ for Legendary Entertainment.
‘I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore’ helmer Macon Blair has also signed a deal to write and direct the project.
Story details remain vague at this stage but sources say that the project is in the vein of the classic comedy ‘Twins,’ the 1988 Ivan Reitman film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito.
Andrew Lazar will produce via his Mad Chance banner. Brolin is also producing via his shingle, Brolin Productions, as is Dinklage through his Estuary Films company.

Apart from ‘Game of Thrones’, Dinklage was last seen in ‘Between Two Ferns: The Movie’. His upcoming projects include ‘I Care A Lot’ with Rosamund Pike and ‘The Croods 2’.
Blair made his name starring in features such as ‘Blue Ruin’ and ‘Green Room’. He made his directorial debut with Netflix feature ‘I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore’ which won 2017’s Sundance Film Festival grand jury prize.
