The cast and crew of new blockbuster Dredd were given a real-life shock while filming on the streets of Johannesburg, South Africa when production was interrupted by a local man who had been set on fire.

The unnamed male ran onto the crowded set looking for medical help and his unexpected medical emergency left Karl Urban, who stars as the larger-than-life anti-hero Judge Dredd, and his co-workers horrified.

He tells the New York Daily News, "We were shooting in the middle of Cape Town, in the street, and this guy comes out of nowhere completely engulfed in flames. And I think that he saw an ambulance on our set and was running for it. It was pretty horrific."
