The Trident Group, the company who employed the men, says that their names will not be released at the request of family members.


The container ship, that doubles as a movie set, was moored in the Seychelles, Fox News reported.

“A postmortem will be carried out this week in order to establish the cause of their sudden deaths while the police investigates the possible circumstances which led to these incidents,” police in the Seychelles said.

The men were apparently part of a 24-member crew that had arrived on Sunday, CNN reported.


Tom Hanks played Captain Phillips in the blockbuster movie of the same name.
