Few details have been shared at this time, and it’s unclear what symptoms the Oscar-winning actor may have suffered from, or what led to him being taken to hospital.
Despite his family’s statement that his condition is improving, it is not yet known when he will be able to leave the hospital or resume filming.
Foxx recently traveled to Atlanta, Georgia, where he filmed the action comedy Back In Action.

His last shoot in Atlanta seems to have been a surprisingly stressful ordeal for the Baby Driver actor, as well as his co-workers.
It was reported last month that Foxx “had an absolute meltdown” while filming the film in the UK, which resulted in several people being fired.
He reportedly kicked out an executive producer from the project, as well as two directors and even his own driver.
According to The Sun, a member of staff has been fired over an apparent scam to access £33,000 in cash from the actor, which was allegedly linked to the sale of a Rolex watch.

The shoot, which was originally supposed to be Cameron’s triumphant return to the movies, was instead a nightmare for her and the rest of the cast.
A friend of the Mask star has exclusively revealed to DailyMail.com that she is likely to return to retirement for good as soon as she finishes her comeback film due to all the drama surrounding it, although she is also seemingly opposed to the standard, critical arguments that come with any movie set.
Few details about the film’s plot or characters have been revealed.
Pictures on Monday appeared to show Foxx coaching the women’s soccer team, but he and Diaz were seen on set in the UK last month filming what appeared to be action scenes in a snowy forest.
