This Lost Boy wants to be found again.
Dante Basco, who played wisecracking Rufio in the 1991 film "Hook" opposite the late Robin Williams, has been trying to make a follow-up movie about his character for some time. Now, he's opened a Kickstarter campaign to raise $30,000 for a short film titled "Bangarang" that would explore Rufio's origin story.
As the Kickstarter's page says, the short would be a prequel set in the modern day focusing on a 13-year-old Rufio "before the mohawk, before Neverland, before he was The Pan." The tough Filipino foster kid finds a ragtag group of friends as he tries to "escape his ill fate, find his happy thought and fulfill his destiny."
It's unclear how the story is set in the modern day, since "Hook" was set in 1991. Then again, time works differently in Neverland. Bangarang!
