Oscar Nominee and Empire star Terrence Howard Joins Cast of "Beneath"

Cupsogue Pictures is pleased to announce that Academy Award-nominee Terrence Howard (“Iron Man,” “Crash”) has joined the cast of its upcoming sci-fi/thriller motion picture “Beneath.”

Howard, who is most known for his role as Col. James Rhodey alongside Robert Downey Jr. in “Iron Man” (2008); as Cameron in Paul Haggis’ “Crash” (2004); and most recently as Lucius Lyon in Lee Daniels’ “Empire” (2015-2020), will star as the character “Paul” in the film, which is set to be directed by Gene Fallaize (“Cain Hill,” “Superman Requiem”).

“Beneath” follows marine salvager Emily Weaver when she finally finds the wreckage of EastAir 675 after an extensive 5-year search. But what she discovers along with the airliner is more shocking and terrifying than anything she ever imagined.

Lydia Hearst (“The Haunting of Sharon Tate”) and Adam Southwick (“Cain Hill”) will be producing the picture for Cupsogue Pictures, which was written by Gene Fallaize & Gavin John.

Filming is due to commence on “Beneath” in Spring 2021 at Pinewood Studios in London.

About Terrence Howard 

Terrence Howard was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Anita Jeanine Williams (née Hawkins) and Tyrone Howard. 

He was raised in Cleveland, Ohio. His love for acting came naturally, through summers spent with his great-grandmother, New York stage actress Minnie Gentry

After being discovered on a New York City street, he later began his acting career by a casting director.

Soon, he followed with several notable TV appearances on shows such as Living Single (1993), NYPD Blue (1993) and Soul Food (2000). He became well known for his lead role in the UPN TV series Sparks (1996).

Howard broke onto the big screen with his riveting performance in Mr Holland’s Opus (1995). 

Howard’s most memorable performances to date are of scene-stealing characters such as “Cowboy” in the Hughes brother’s film Dead Presidents (1995) and as “Quentin” in Malcolm D. Lee‘s Independent film The Best Man (1999). 

The Best Man earned him an NAACP Image Award, Independent Spirit Award nomination and a Chicago Film Critics Award nomination.

A self-taught musician, Howard plays both the piano and the guitar. You can see Terrence display his musical talents opposite Jamie Foxx in this year’s breakout film Ray (2004). 

A promising songwriter, Howard’s lyrics, are soon acquired by some of today’s most prominent artists.

In addition to his musical talents, Howard also has a strong interest in science.
