Jean-Claude Van Damme reportedly suffered a minor heart attack on the set of his latest film.
The actor was working on his latest high-octane action thriller, Weapon, in New Orleans when he suffered a minor heart attack, according to website Twitchfilm.net.
The website reports that production was halted on the movie on Tuesday of last week, the day after his 50th birthday.
The actor was admitted to a hospital in New Orleans and later returned to Belgium with his wife Gladys Portugues. He’s expected to make a full recovery.
There’s been no official word from his rep.
Meanwhile, Moviehole’s Clint Morris has downplayed the reports:
“I’m hearing that production of the film hasn’t actually ‘halted’, it’s just worked around Van Damme’s close ups. The film is as good as done. I’m also told that Van Damme, 50, had been feeling tight pains in his chest and took himself to hospital to look into it so not as big a drama as (the) headlines may make out.”
Get well soon, buddy!
