Hook - Rufio Short Film - Bangarang

Earlier this year, you might remember hearing that Hook star Dante Basco was trying to Kickstart a short film that would act as a prequel to Steven Spielberg’s Peter Pan movie and give us the origins of his character, the Lost Boys leader known as Rufio.

Written and directed by Jonah Feingold, the project was said to focus on a 13-year old kid named Roofus whose mother is forced to put him into foster care. But Roofus may find an escape from the situation in a little place called Neverland.
