According to Go, George Clooney has stated that cutting Brolin from the movie was not the first time that he had to let an actor know they were no longer going to be part of the project. Back in 1998, Clooney was starring in a movie called "Thin Red Line" and recalled a similar situation happened to him when he and the movie's editor sat down to watch the scenes.

A series of scenes had been shot with Clooney for the movie and the star received a phone call from Terrance Malick who explained that they were cutting Clooney from the entire movie apart from one scene towards the end. Clooney requested that he be cut from the movie entirely but Malick was adamant about keeping the final scene.

Josh Brolin has not yet commented on Clooney's decision to cut him from the movie.
