Domestic Violence Arrest Gets Edward Furlong Fired From Second Film
It seems Edward Furlong just can’t catch a break these days and the reason is his domestic violence problems, which recently got him removed from another film. Basically, Furlong was arrested on Sunday for allegedly attacking his girlfriend and the chap is still behind bars. The thing is Furlong has been accused twice before of domestic violence and that too in a short period of the last 3 months. It is therefore obvious that the cops are taking the whole issue rather seriously as he seems to be a repeat offender and releasing him might be a risk.
The film that Furlong got kicked out of is a movie named Other Plans, which is a romantic comedy and its producers weren’t at all happy with the situation. They in end could take it no more and as a result terminated Furlong’s contract. They also through letter informed Furlong’s reps about the termination. 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”.

It seems the producers were under no legal obligation to honor their contract with Furlong, if he ended up having legal troubles. Furlong really needs to get his act together and screw on his head straight, or he might end up having no movie career at all. In fact, it’s possible that in the future no filmmaker would want to work with him given his history. After all, a film has a lot of money riding on it and no one wants to bet on horse that would constantly trouble its jockey. Probably, what Furlong needs are therapy sessions, where he can be taught a thing or two about anger management.
Joe Eckardt who is the producer of Other Plans, revealed that the movie has 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”. As a producer of the film Joe probably had to look at the bigger picture in the end and was therefore forced to take this harsh decision. Reportedly, actor Jason Mewes was approached to replace Furlong, but he it seems turned down the offer. Coming back to Furlong; in November, he was sacked from the movie Mislead, after being arrested at LAX.
