The American History X actor got another contract terminated after his third domestic violence arrest.
According to TMZ, Furlong was arrested by the police Sunday for allegedly attacking his girlfriend the third time in only 3 months.
He would stay behind bars until $30,000 bail is posted, The Daily Mail reports.
Even though Furlong pleaded not guilty to the charge, the producers of romantic comedy Other Plans still opted to fire the actor.
The producers sent a letter to his home, that stated, "Given Edward's current status as being in jail awaiting arraignment on two charges of criminal domestic violence, we are no longer able to engage his services for the film as per our agreement,"
One of the producers Joe Eckardt stated that the film had been waiting too long for Furlong to clear his legal issues, and it was time for them to move on with the movie creation.
Other Plans was the second movie whose producers decided to fire Furlong due to this domestic violence case. He was previously fired in November last year a movie entitled Misled for the same case.
