Hook actor launches Kickstarter for Rufio prequel
The story of Peter Pan has been told many times, but Hook star Dante Basco thinks another Lost Boy should get his chance to shine.
The actor, who starred as Rufio in the Steven Spielberg-directed film in 1992, has opened a Kickstarter campaign for a prequel about his character, the mohawked leader of the Lost Boys who challenges Robin Williams’ Pan when he returns to Neverland.
Basco and his group are seeking $30,000 to make the short film Bangarang, which will tell the story of an orphaned Rufio — originally named Roofus — before he came to Neverland.
On the Kickstarter page, the film is described as being “about believing in yourself, and not letting your past define you are. Finding your destiny and forcing it into existence.”
Currently sitting at $5,846, the campaign is open until March 14.
