Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx is on the mend after a medical emergency on the set of his latest movie Back In Action. The actor, 55, was rushed to a hospital in Atlanta after experiencing an undisclosed medical complication on Tuesday.

According to sources, Foxx’s family came from out of town to be with him at the hospital. The actor’s daughter, Corinne Foxx, confirmed the news of her father’s hospitalization on her Instagram account, sharing a statement that he had suffered a “medical complication.” The family also expressed their gratitude for the public’s support and asked for privacy during this time.

Foxx has been shooting Back In Action in Atlanta with Cameron Diaz, which was marketed as Diaz’s return to acting after a hiatus. However, the movie has been beset by problems, including an unexploded World War II-era bomb discovered on the set in London last month.

Sources close to Foxx’s condition have stated that the actor is now communicating and showing signs of improvement. However, it is still unclear when he will be able to leave the hospital or resume filming.

Foxx’s latest movie project was a surprise return to acting for Diaz, who reportedly plans to retire for good after a string of mishaps on the set of Back In Action. Glenn Close is also featured in the film, which will be available on Netflix.

Foxx has won several accolades for his acting, including an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 biopic Ray. He has also starred in movies such as Django Unchained, Collateral, and Baby Driver.
