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.
The most rewarding movies are those that seem to offer something new with every repeat viewing. These are the films that continue to surprise and delight us by sneaking in references, hidden gags, and on-screen plot clues that you didn’t notice even on your 3rd, 4th or even your 25th viewing. Warning: once seen, these can never be forgotten.
