Melbourne (ANI): Hollywood action man Jean Claude Van Damme is said
to have suffered a minor heart attack on the set of his new film
'Weapon'. According to website Twitchfilm.net, the 50-year-old
martial arts star collapsed on the set of the film in New Orleans
and was taken to hospital.
Production on the movie was halted to allow Van Damme time to
recover at home in Belgium with his wife, Gladys Portugues. The
movie star, dubbed the '', was likely to make a full recovery,
according to a source.
"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." News.com.au quoted Moviehole's Clint Morris as saying.
