'Hook' Turns 25: Lost Boys Reunite For Photo Shoot, Remember Robin Williams
“We haven't seen each other in quite some time but I almost feel like there was no lost time,” says James Madio, who played Don’t Ask.
Steven Spielberg's Hook is turning 25 later this year and the actors who played the Lost Boys in the family adventure film recently reunited for a full-costumed photo shoot. The gang also reflected on their time with star Robin Williams, who died two years ago Thursday.
“We haven't seen each other in quite some time but I almost feel like there was no lost time,” James Madio, who played Don’t Ask, told Entertainment Tonight. “We just picked it up right away where we were and just reminiscing about everything. It's just really cool.”
The Amblin/Tristar film, featuring Williams as Peter Pan, was released in December 1991 and grossed $300 million worldwide.
Production company 22 Vision, which spent years trying to get the Lost Boys together, already shot reunions of The Little Rascals and School of Rock, Brian Pocrass, CEO of 22 Vision told ET.
“Hook is just one of those movies that people really grew up on,” Pocrass said. “To get them together to remember Robin and celebrate this milestone is something that I loved being a part of.”
Dante Basco, who played the Lost Boys leader, Rufio, lamented the death of Williams.
“I think for all of us [Robin’s death] was the death of our childhood,” Basco told ET. “There's sadness there, also there's a lot of space to kinda celebrate one of the most legendary artists of our time. [Robin] really taught me at a young age what it means to be a star, what it means to be a leader on a set. Everything you want Robin Williams to be he delivered in spades.”
