Matthew McConaughey movie filming at Burke Lakefront Airport

CLEVELAND -- Cameras are rolling inside a hangar at Burke Lakefront Airport.

White Boy Rick, a movie starring Matthew McConaughey, set up shop along the lakeshore Thursday.

The Oscar-winning actor has been spending the last few weeks throughout Northeast Ohio (see where he's been spotted).

The film is based on the true story of Richard Wershe Junior who became the FBI’s youngest informant ever at age 14 before becoming a drug dealer.

McConaughey plays the boy's father.

The film -- which also stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bruce Dern and Piper Laurie -- is set to hit theaters early next year.
