OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Thunder's success last season is paying off in a unique way for Oklahoma City.  

Movie Director Furqaan Clover lives part-time in Miami, and came to OKC for the NBA Finals.  He says he was so impressed by the city that he convinced his Hollywood bosses to change the filming location of his next movie from Miami to Oklahoma City. 

Furqaan says filming begins August 20 and will run for 10 days. The title of the movie is "How To Commit Fraud." It's about the personal lives of eight young identity thieves. 

Furqaan was in Bricktown Thursday auditioning local actors for bit parts in the movie. He says he hopes the movie is released sometime next Spring.

"It's a thriller and a drama.  Once I saw this place, I realized that people in my industry have a skewed view of this city. As a filmmaker, you always want the new fresh discovery," Furqaan said. 

Some scenes in the movie will be shot at Club One 15 in Bricktown.
