Guillermo del Toro's  gothic romance film, Crimson Peak is set to hit the silver screens, and Tom Hiddleston revealed that the Sharpe siblings will have a "very deep connection". Reports have surfaced that the ghost lurking in the mysterious house might be the mother of Thomas and Lucille Sharpe.

Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain are set to play as the Sharpe siblings, Sir Thomas and Lady Lucille respectively, and as hinted by Hiddleston, fans are likely to see a deep connection between the two. More than filial, Thomas and Lucille are said to delve into an incestuous relationship.

"The thing about gothic romance is, there's always a sexuality at play. And incest has been something that's been hinted at by other novels in the genre. But I'm not going to lay it on with anything too hard for you guys," Hiddleston said, as reported by Latin Post.

He also added later on that what Thomas and Lucille has is an interesting dynamic. He also said "They're a brother and a sister who've been orphaned, and they're in this big old house, and they have a very deep connection. But there's a lot of other romantic elements in the film, too."

Reports suggest that if the connection between Lucille and Thomas extends to more than just being brothers and sisters, the film might present two different triangles. One that involves Thomas, Edith Cushing, and Edith's friend Dr. Alan McMichael, while the other one involves Thomas, Edith, and Lucille.

It was also previously reported that this "deep" relationship between Thomas and Lucille might eventually affect Thomas and Edith's relationship. Unconfirmed reports also suggest that an intimate scene between Hiddleston (Thomas), and Chastain (Lucille) might take place in the movie.

Meanwhile, reports have surfaced that the ghost lurking in the Sharpes' house might be one of the Sharpes. According to Movie News Guide, "Mother Ghost" as revealed in the Pop! Vinyls by Funko, might be Thomas and Lucille's mother.

However, it might also reportedly be an older resident who used to own the house. The face of the ghost was not seen in the trailer, and so these speculations remain to be unconfirmed.

Crimson Peak cast also includes Mia Wasikowska as Edith Cushing and Charlie Hunnam as Dr. Michael. It is directed by Guillermo del Toro, and written by del Toro along with Matthew Robbins. It is set to hit theaters in October 16.
