John Barrowman and the Torchwood crew at Comic Con recently.  It's in seven parts.  I'm listening to part 1 while I type this.

Here's the link, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzkjFgyUFhY

We hope this turns out to be true!!

We reported earlier this year that FOX was looking to re-make the popular UK sci-fi series Torchwood for American audiences, and almost immediately people began to speculate whether or not the network would change one of the main character's sexual preference!!

Openly gay Scottish actor John Barrowman portrayed Captain Jack Harkness in the UK version, and has admitted he would LOVE to bring the character to American audiences, but only if the character continues hooking up with dudes!!

Barrowman says:

"Julie has said, as has Russell, that there will be no Torchwood without John Barrowman as Capt. Jack… If I am asked to do Torchwood again, I will do it at the drop of a hat - whether it's in America or back in Britain or if it's for a film. I absolutely love Capt. Jack. The last thing I would want would be for Jack to become this heterosexual, straight hero. He's an omnisexual guy. He likes men, women, aliens, whatever. I think we should continue going down that route."

We sincerely hope that US producers honor the integrity of the original and agree to those terms! Do we really need ANOTHER womanizing, super hetero scoundrel type??

This is news to me.  I hope for Torchwood to stay been made in the UK because the US make it they will change a lot of it.  I know what happened to the Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy movie, it was awful.  I second that, keep Jack as he is, a lover of of things living, whether it be human or alien.

I don't care where it's filmed as long as they keep him true to his character.

I've only discovered Torchwood this year (yes yes, I live under a rock :P ) anyway omg! I have become a bit of a fan. 
 
Anyway in case you haven't seen it yet: http://www.bbc.co.uk/torchwood/torchwood_new_series/
 
Fox is out (/cheer), Starz Entertainment is in. Looks promising. From this and a few comments by JB and RTD it seems like they will still have a fair bit of content based in Wales, along with the international stuff.

I wrote off an email to the BBC begging them to bring back Ianto, before I realised that a million tragic fangirls before me have done the same thing.. oops. :shock:

Well if the news of a US version of Torchwood is true, then JB better make sure he has a great entertainment lawyer, because US studios are notorious for bastardizing original ideas to fit some sort of formula aimed at a certain demographic, and I'd not hold my breath about them letting him continue to be 'omnisexual', they'll find a way to make him have only hetero sex with someone, even if it's just the receptionist..

I'm certainly not going to hide and watch for that to happen.

:MC3:

Wow! I can't believe they committed to seven years! The show could bomb and be cancelled, that's ambitious to sign on for that long. I can't wait to see the new version, guess I'll have to keep the starz channel, I was going to get rid of HBO and Starz for awhile, maybe I'll keep it for now.

Even though he was just the "butler", Ianto was my favorite character because when he developed feelings for Captain Jack he didn't run from it. He went for it and was like, "I'm not gay, I just happen to love this particular man." That's true love, I say, to love someone beyond fear, or judgement from society, or your own orientation even! He just fell in love with the person. And then they killed him! Vexing, I tell you. Very vexing.

Jack and Ianto were "fuck buddies" for quite a while before they developed feelings for each other. Jack really loved Gwen, he almost told her but she interrupted him to say she was engaged.

I meant that is was love for Ianto, not for Jack.

I ordered Starz just so I could watch the series, I like it so far, nice to John Barrowman back in action as Captain Jack.

Well I've just watched Mircle Day. I was not aware it had started yet, lol.

It's very good and can't wait to see episode two. Looks like Jack will get some man action as I saw that in the trailer.
