Chris Pratt has claimed that dead bodies were found at the shooting location of his upcoming movie, Tomorrow War, but local police have no recollection of that happening.

The actor, 40, told Ellen DeGeneres that the bodies of two explorers were found near to where the movie was being filmed in Iceland, after being frozen there for ‘over 80’ years.

He explained: ‘When we got up there, they had just uncovered – and this is crazy – a couple weeks before, a couple had been found in a fissure that they had fallen down, and they had been in there for over 80 years.

‘They were fully preserved in their glacier hiking clothes from whatever that would be – 1930 or 1940. They had their supplies, their rations.

‘They were lovers and they fell down in a hole and just went missing.’

However, despite Chris’s claims, local police appeared to have no knowledge of two frozen lovers being found just weeks before filming was set to take place.

According to local media reports, via The Independent, police officer Jón Garðar Bjarnason told Fréttablaðið: ‘I am not aware of this. It sounds like an exciting movie script.’

Another police officer, Oddur Árnason, added: ‘I do not recognise this issue, but the story is good.’

While the bodies don’t seem to have been uncovered weeks before filming on the sci-fi military action film began, there could be some truth to the tale after all.

It turns out, a very similar case happened in July 2017, when the bodies of a Swiss couple were found in an Alpine glacier 75 years after they went missing.

The bodies of Marcelin and Francine Dumoulin were discovered by walkers after the glacier began to melt, after the pair had lain there since falling into a crevasse in 1942.

Rescue workers had searched for the couple, who had seven children between the ages of two and 13, for two months, but abandoned the search after failing to find any trace of them.

Following the 2017 discovery of their bodies, their two surviving daughters were able to hold a funeral for their parents after they had been identified through DNA tests.
