Action movie star Jean Claude Van Damme has reportedly suffered a heart attack on the set of his new film Weapon.

According to E! Online the so-called 'Muscles from Brussels' was shooting in New Orleans on the day after his 50th birthday when he was taken ill.

He was rushed to hospital then released after a brief stay, and is expected to make a full recovery.

Weapon, which is out next year, tells the tale of rival assassins who team up to take down a drug cartel.
