HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (WXYZ) — A local improv theatre has a hot idea for a fundraiser – they want to set a man on fire.

Planet Ant Theatre in Hamtramck says it's part of its Nicolas Uncaged film festival in February.

According to the GoFundMe page , Nicolas Cage's stuntman will be there to set a Guinness World Record for the longest duration full-body burn.

Planet Ant wants to raise $13,000 for supplies, safety and to fly in the Guinness judges.

The group says if it falls short of the goal, or raises more money than they need, it will be donated to the Hamtramck Fire Department.
