In the summer of 2008 23-year old Long Island filmmaker living Alex Valderana directed, shot, produced a 30 minute short fan film entitled Batman: Hothouse based directly off the original John Francis Moore story. Alex and a team of editors are currently in the process of editing the film together. No release date set as of yet, but sure enough once it is the Fan Film Follies will let you know.
The plot is as follows:
Nicholas Thornhill, one of the wealthiest and most intelligent men in Gotham City, is found dead on his doorstep, seemingly plummeting to his death from several stories above. Batman arrives at the crime scene and finds Pamela Isley, a.k.a. Poison Ivy, amongst the crowd. Suspicion begins to arouse with the Gotham police force and Batman that Isley is behind Thornhill’s death. As the plot thickens, friends become enemies and corruption in the Gotham police force runs deeper than ever, and Isley is placed in more danger than she ever thought possible.
