Brolin, Wright and five crew members of the Oliver Stone film "W." were arrested on misdemeanor charges at the Stray Cat Club on July 12. Brolin and Wright were charged with interfering with police officers after a disturbance involving a crew member broke out.

Los Angeles attorney Blair Berk, who represented the actors and five others, says prosecutors in Shreveport have agreed to drop all charges against the group within 60 days. She declined to comment further.

A prosecutor didn't immediately return a phone message seeking comment Tuesday.

Brolin, who played President George W. Bush in Stone's film, wasn't required to appear during a court hearing Tuesday.
