Jamie Foxx Hospitalised After Health Scare

Jamie Foxx Hospitalised After Suffering From Medical Complications

In an update coming from his family, Jamie Foxx remains hospitalised after experiencing a medical complication. With no further details as to the condition of the Oscar-winning actor, people grow worried about Foxx’s exact condition.

The news reports state that the actor, known for his various roles, such as Ray Charles, Django and Electro, suffered an undisclosed health scare. However, he was not brought to the hospital via ambulance but a private vehicle instead.

With 94 credits to his name as an actor, 10 of which are still up and coming in various stages of production. He has recently completed Strays, as he gave voice to the character named Bug. Projects that just entered postproduction are They Cloned Tyrone, God Is a Bullet, and Tin Soldier. All of which have a 2023 target release date.

The actor is also scheduled to take on the role of Mike Tyson in a mini-series still in development entitled Tyson. Other projects in post-production include All-Star Weekend, Back In Action, Signal Hill and The Burial. His portrayal of Biggz in Groove Tails is also still in production.

Needless to say, the actor is keeping a rather busy, jam-packed schedule.

According to CNN, Foxx was in Atlanta for Netflix’s Back In Action when the emergency situation happened. Although the specific occurrence did not take place while the actor was shooting. His daughter Corrine recently shared the family statement:

We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.

The health incident stopped the shoot for Back in Action last April 12th. The next day, the shoot resumed with a stand-in for the actor.

As the family wishes not to disclose the specific condition the actor is going through, they assure fans and followers that Foxx is on the mend. Most likely that the family, and perhaps Foxx himself, do not wish to expound on the condition and focus on Jamie Foxx’s recovery.

No other information is shared as to whether the actor’s recuperation period will affect the rest of the production of Netflix’s Back In Action. IMDb lists the project to be already in post-production thus, fans assume that the actor is able to finish his character’s principal photography.

In People’s report, a casting director on the Netflix original production notified the extras that a scheduled scene for filming that Sunday has been cancelled due to “changes in production”. Foxx had been shooting in Atlanta with Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close for Back In Action. The scheduled scenes to be shot on Monday and Tuesday are to move forward according to plan.

Netflix has yet to make a statement or update with regard to the effects of Foxx’s medical condition towards the progression of the production.

As further tests are being conducted to fully understand what the actor is going through, the projects he has in his pipeline will definitely have some changes in plans and schedules.

Many are looking forward to seeing the actor portray the role of one of the greatest boxers known in history. His casting as Mike Tyson is one of the most anticipated portrayals from the actor. It is the project that Iron Mike himself is closely involved in and fully supports, unlike another biopic that was released on Hulu which the boxer claims to be unauthorised.

Jamie Foxx has established his capacity to entertain as an actor, writer, composer, singer, comedian and producer. Many are expressing support and praying for him to be literally Back in Action. We join in wishing the actor a speedy recovery.
