 You are fart factory, slug-slimed, sack-of-rat-guts-in-cat-vomit, cheesy, scab-picked, pimple-squeezing finger bandage. A week old maggot burger with everything on it and flies on the side -Rufio

In one of the greatest moves an actor can pull, the guy we know as Rufio, launched a Kickstarter campaign for the prequel to Hook…25 years later. I don’t like this, I love it. Dante Basco aka Rufio, the fearless leader of the lost boys, is onto something here.

Basco helped launch the campaign to fund the film that will serve as a prequel to ‘Hook,’ and how Rufio ended up at Neverland

Kickstarter This is the story about Rufio, before the mohawk, before Neverland, before he was The Pan. Roofus is a 13-year-old kid who is destined to be more than he is. After his mother is forced to put him into a foster home, he and his rag-tag group of best friends – a Jamaican boy named Julani and a bright-eyed latina force of nature named Ella – find a way for Roofus to escape his ill fate, find his happy thought and fulfill his destiny.  The story has been reverse engineered from what was set-up in Hook. We answer all the questions you’ve ever wondered — How and why is Rufio the leader of the Lost Boys? Where does “bangarang” come from? And of course, how he gets the mohawk. 

If the campaign reaches $200,000, creators believe they can make Bangarang a feature film.
