Assuming this is a facade brick rather than solid brick, probably about $3.50-5.50/SF ($0.50-1.00/SF demo, $1.50-2.00 drywall, about $1.50-2.50/SF prime and paint) installed and painted - this assumes normal stud spacing is in existence. You need a General Contractor - Remodel unless you want to manage a general demolition contractor, drywall installer, and painter yourself.

If solid brick rather than facade brick, add about $0.50-1.00/SF depending on if face-bonded or if it has steel ties intot he wall (as it should).

I am of course assuming this is not a structural brick wall you are talking about, just an architectural surface. If a solid brick wall (but non-structural) add about $2-3/SF to put in studs - if structural load bearing wall, then you need an architect or structural engineer to figure out new support requirements for the wall, and temporary support needed during demolition and reconstruction.
