The Terminator 2 star was detained on suspicion of felony domestic violence after he allegedly became aggressive with his girlfriend during an argument at Los Angeles International Airport.
He was subsequently released from custody on $50,000 (£31,250) bail, but now his latest project has fallen through due to the drama.
Furlong was scheduled to fly to Detroit, Michigan on Tuesday to begin work on the film, but because of his no-show, his role is now being re-cast.
Producer Scott Baldyga tells TMZ.com, ""I love Eddie. I think he's a great actor, but we are two days away from shooting and we have another guy to cast in his place. And we aren't going to lose any sleep over this.""
