Michigan style basement

We have a 100yr old house that has a michigan style basement. The interior brick walls are just red brick and are becoming brittle in sections. We are considering redoing the brick and pushing it back closer to the actual house foundation. We dont want to extend to the foundation because we dont want to accidentally cause problems. Has anyone ever seen this done? Of what problem they might have had. I'm thinking that it will have to be done in sections, with parts of the walls braced. Just wondering what people think, and what people have seen done with these types of basements. Thanks
