"Why would anyone have it _out_ for Bronson?"

Someone had it in for the script-writer, perhaps. Language-change in
progress, again, since I've come across "in" replaced by "out," in this
context, numerous of ;-) times, over the past dekkids.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
