Brick walls

Remodeling a old bathroom. There is some old ugly panel on the walls with brick behind it. I want to gut it out and replace it with drywall, but can't figure out the best way to attach the drywall. Is there some way I can attach it to the brick itself or do I have yo frame it out.

Best way is to frame it out, brick will be a pain to attach anything to it and get it all flat.

Is it actually a true solid brick wall , or just a brick veneer with studs behind it? Why function did the brick have? Part of an old masonry chimney, or something decorative?

If it's solid, like a chimney, it's best to fir it out as Joe says. If it's a brick veneer, get dusty and chisel that thing out!
Do it right from the beginning if you only want to do the job once. It'll be cheaper in the long term.
