NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (X17online) - Jean-Claude Van Damme was hospitalized due to a minor heart attack that he suffered on the set of his latest action film in New Orleans, Weapon.

According to Van Damme's reps, he "is OK." The actor, who just turned 50 years old earlier this week, is now back at his Belgium home to recover.

In the movie, the action star will play an assassin who is trying to destroy a drug cartel. Although production has been temporarily halted, Weapon is still scheduled to hit theaters early next year.
