Edward Furlong

Fired from SECOND Film

Over Domestic Violence Arrest

The bad news keeps piling up for Edward Furlong -- the "Terminator 2" actor just got canned from ANOTHER film as a result of his domestic violence problems.

TMZ broke the story ... Eddie was popped by cops on Sunday for allegedly attacking his girlfriend -- the third time he’s been accused of domestic violence in only 3 months. Eddie has already pled not guilty ... but he's still behind bars.

And the producers behind Eddie’s new film -- a rom-com called "Other Plans" -- have had enough, firing off a letter to Eddie’s reps yesterday, terminating their contract with the actor.

The letter states, "Given Edwards 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."

Producer Joe Eckardt tells TMZ the movie's already "suffered way too long waiting for [Eddie] to be clear of his legal issues ... It's time to move on now and make our film without him."

Sources close to the production say they were in talks with Jason Mewes -- aka Jay from "Jay and Silent Bob" -- to replace him ... but he's already passed on the project.

It’s the second film Eddie’s been fired from due to his ongoing domestic violence problems with his GF -- back in November, Furlong was canned from a flick called “Misled” following his arrest at LAX.

When so many people are just trying to get close to their fame or money it can leave celebrities more isolated than ever, giving them no support system to help them through their problems, and they end up turning to these poor coping habits like drugs and alcohol, which in turn leads to this violent behaviour. It's hard to watch such an exceptional actor go down such a dark path and I can only hope that he finds a way off of it. Edward, you are truly a great actor and I know that there is still some good left in you. Please find the strength inside yourself to seek out the help that you need and become the role model that your son deserves. "You must be stronger than you imagine you can be." Good luck and take care.
