Terrence Howard is reportedly suing two Hollywood producers for allegedly using his likeness without his permission in the sports movie “Triumph.”
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Howard fired off a cease-and-desist letter to Cinemark, Digital Ignition Entertainment, and Argonaut Entertainment after claiming his name, image, and likeness were featured in the movie without his permission.
The docs say that use of his likeness was only “conditioned upon the satisfaction of material monetary and non-monetary promises made by the producers, which never happened.”
So now they have to stop the movie or pay up.
They say he told the producers on April 15 that he did not give his consent and that the film could not be released until he signed off on it. The movie was released on April 30.

“The producers made this film with a mission to help advance awareness of Cerebral Palsy and to do our part to promote inclusion in the film.” They added, “We couldn’t be more proud of the job our cast and crew did to highlight the remarkable accomplishments of the writer of the film, who has Cerebral Palsy, and the lead actor of the film, RJ Mitte, who is also diagnosed with cerebral palsy,” Digital Ignition Entertainment, told TMZ.
