He also signed for Brothers, of Max Barbakow (acclaimed for Palm Spring), with Josh Brolin and Peter Dinklage.
“Are you ready for La Brenaissance? Because it is coming …” It is with these words that Deadline shared the good news last night: shortly after having got the lead role of The Whale, by Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan), Brendan Fraser sign for two enticing projects in quick succession: Killers of the Flower Moon, by Martin Scorsese, and Brothers, by Max Barbakow. A comeback dreamed by fans of the actor from The Mummy, who lived a long time in the bottom of the wave after the success of these adventure films in the turn of the 2000s, and recently revealed that he was sexually assaulted by influential Hollywood figure, Philip Berk, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). His injuries from filming his stunts (which forced him to take strong drugs and made him gain weight) and his divorce ended up demoralizing him, but since he spoke about it publicly in 2018, it seems finally go up the slope.

Also worn by Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone, Robert De Niro and Jesse Plemons, Killers of the Flower Moon is based on a true story, and will tell the FBI investigation following the murders of several members of the Osage Indian tribe in Oklahoma, murdered after finding oil on their land in the 1920s.
The pitch of Brothers is currently kept secret, but this new project by Max Barbakow is eagerly awaited following the warm welcome of his film Palm spring. Co-written by Macon Blair and Etan Cohen, it will also be worn by Peter Dinklage, Glenn Close and Josh Brolin.
