The production team on the upcoming Jamie Foxx movie Back in Action temporarily “shut down” the film shoot following the actor’s hospitalization in Atlanta.

A source told People magazine filming was halted Wednesday as producers decided how to proceed.

Filming resumed Thursday with a stand-in used in Foxx’s place, the outlet reported.

According to an email the magazine obtained about the project, a casting director on the film notified extras that a scene scheduled to shoot this Sunday has been canceled because of “changes in production.”

Scenes scheduled to film on Monday and Tuesday are expected to continue as planned, the memo added.

Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close also have roles in the action film, which will be released on Netflix.
