Los Angeles - Edward Furlong has been dropped from another movie after being arrested for a third time on suspicion of domestic abuse, reports TMZ.

The troubled actor - best known for his role as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgment Day - has been replaced as the star of a new romantic comedy after being detained by police officers in Los Angeles on early Sunday morning for an alleged incident of domestic violence towards his girlfriend.

Producers for the new movie Other Plans, sent a letter to the 37-year-old actor's representatives terminating his contract on Tuesday.

According to TMZ.com 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."

Legal troubles

Producer Joe Eckardt also said 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."

The American History X star was previously arrested in October 2012 after allegedly getting physical with his girlfriend during an argument at LAX Airport in Los Angeles.

He was again arrested in November for supposedly inflicting "corporal injury" on the unnamed woman and was then fired from the movie Misled.

As well as legal troubles with his girlfriend, Edward's ex-wife Rachael Kneeland, was granted a court mandate stipulating that the actor could only have supervised visits with the couple's six-year-old son, Ethan, in November 2012.
