Dan Akroyd was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles over the weekend after complaining of stomach pain.

Dan Akroyd Rushed To Hospital

On Saturday morning at around 10 a.m., paramedics responded to a call from Akroyd’s home. He was then transported by ambulance to a hospital in Santa Monica, reported TMZ. After a series of tests, Akroyd was discharged, with doctors apparently uncertain as to the cause of his stomach pain.

Akroyd is said to be in good health despite the medical scare. “He’s ok,” a rep for the actor told Gossip Cop. Akroyd has not personally commented on the incident.

Akroyd will soon be seen on the big screen in the female-driven Ghostbusters remake, which he also helped to write. He has been a vocal supporter of the film, responding to those expressing fears that the new film will pale in comparison to the originals.

He took to Facebook last month, writing, “As originator of the original: Saw test screening of new movie. Apart from brilliant, genuine performances from the cast both female and male, it has more laughs and more scares than the first 2 films plus Bill Murray is in it! As one of millions of man-fans and Ray Stantz, I’m paying to see that and bringing all my friends!”

The new Ghostbusters, directed by Paul Feig, stars Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones as the titular ghostbusters. Chris Hemsworth, Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver are in the film as well.

Ghostbusters hits theaters July 15.
