 Right, thanks Candyfloss.

I just read/watched the link. In other words this film has absolutely nothing to do with the McCanns, virtually no similarity whatsoever. I wondered what everyone was talking about at first.

Why all the fake outrage from the family friend aka Clarence Mitchell? Five years ago - when they were officially police suspects - Team McCann were having fun discussing cast lists: Mr Mitchell said: “While it may be hugely entertaining and a bit of fun to think of cast lists, we are a million miles away from that sort of thing." They only backtracked on the movie plans because of the media & public backlash.


Clarence Mitchell confirmed talks were held before Xmas 2007

From USA Today: The parents of missing British girl Madeleine McCann have held talks with a U.S. entertainment company regarding the making of a film about their daughter's disappearance, a family spokesman said Tuesday. Spokesman Clarence Mitchell said he and another family representative met with IMG Media last month.


IMG confirm talks with Team McCann

From CNN
Jim Gallagher, a spokesman for the talent and entertainment agency IMG, said program maker Darlow Smithson -- owned by IMG -- had held "a preliminary meeting" with representatives of Gerry and Kate McCann, whose daughter went missing in May last year from the family's holiday apartment in Portugal


Then followed a media backlash:

From the Sun (ref:Anorak) Jan 2008:
THE SUN front page: “Maddie hunt ‘to be film’”
Page 9: “ They pray that movie will help find Maddie”
Gerry McCann is a “cardiac specialist”. The McCanns are “doctors”
“IS THIS THE RIGHT DECISION?”
“YES,” says Lorraine Kelly, GMTV presenter.
“NO,” says the Sun’s Jon ‘Guanty’ Gaunt – “I guess the title of the McCann’s proposed film has to be Home Alone”. Or not…

From the Mail:
Allison Pearson 8 January 2008
When I heard that the McCanns are in talks to make a movie of Madeleine's story I instinctively wanted to adopt the brace position - the one you get into on a plane when it's about to hit the ground. For if such a project goes ahead while Maddie's fate is still unclear it can only be a disaster movie - a disaster for the reputation of the McCanns, and a disaster for those of us who have defended them and prayed for their lost child. Critics who have never forgiven Gerry and Kate for leaving their kids alone in their holiday apartment will be confirmed in their view that the couple have truly terrible judgment. They will be accused of bad taste; of lacking respect for Madeleine's memory.

And then came the denial:

From the Guardian: “McCanns deny reports of Madeleine film”
Writes Gerry McCann on his blog: “We can categorically deny that we are considering a movie about Madeleine’s disappearance.

Exactly Tasprin, I thought the same earlier, but being useless at search I knew somebody with a good memory and good at search tool would post.clapping 

Every time a friend or spokesperson is quoted, they are shot down.  Why bother?

Edited to add - I love Jon Gaunt's comment - Home alone - or not. Did they ever sue Gaunty?

Plebgate, sometimes you've just got to laugh about the whole ludicrous charade: Mr McCann and his wife Kate declined to comment but a family friend said: "It is outrageous to suggest parallels between what is portrayed in this film and what happened to Madeleine. "Kate and Gerry won't dignify it with a comment. It could even hinder the search for Madeleine."

No of course they won't, why should they when they've got Clarence Mitchell to do it for them?

As far as I know the only person to have made a connection between the film and the Lord and Lady of Rothley Towers is their friend and neighbour Tracey Kandohla.

Perhaps they could have a word with her about it........

guardian.co.uk, Tuesday 8 January 2008 14.31 GMT

Representatives of Madeleine McCann's family have spoken to an entertainment and media company about turning the story of her disappearance into a film.
Clarence Mitchell, the spokesman for Gerry and Kate McCann, said the meeting with IMG before Christmas was positive, but that no deal had yet been signed.

Talks on a lucrative film deal were held amid concern the £1.2m fund dedicated to finding the four-year-old, who vanished in Portugal last May, is rapidly running out.

The family have hired a Spanish private detective agency on a £50,000 monthly retainer, and a widespread advertising campaign is adding to the bill.

"We have had a preliminary meeting with some producers and directors from IMG with a view to discussing an idea for a film. We've not agreed anything, we're not about to sign anything," Mitchell said. "We like the proposal, we thought it was fair, but there are others."

The board of Madeleine's Fund is due to meet this week and will discuss the proposal. Mitchell said the film may have a "cinema feel", and would be key part of replenishing Madeleine's Fund.

"If in theory a large film were to be made our lawyers would make sure our commercial interests are protected," he said. "Madeleine's Fund is just over £1m. The money is going on investigators and advertising. It's dwindling. The money is going. I would imagine we've got a few months left. It's not going to last the year unless we get more money in."

In addition to a film deal, Mitchell said it was a book deal was possible "at some point down the line", as part of efforts to find Madeleine.

Mitchell said he was still being inundated with offers for interviews with the McCanns, but added: "They cannot get involved in anything personally until their status [as suspects under Portuguese law] is lifted

Madeleine has always been a meal ticket to them, has parents they absolutly disgust me all they see is £££££££££££££££££
I believe they would they have gone ahead with there version of events if the PJ files hadn't been released

C'mon, cut the McScam's some slack. After all, they DID spend their "life savings, looking for Madeleine"titter spit coffee

The lady of Rot-ly Tower is perhaps right in one aspect - there is element that is not parallel ie this couple did not leave their child alone in an unlocked apt in the dark while they went out to get pissed.

 Have they really used their life savings?  Has the Fund run out?

If they are paying all their own legal costs the Fund could be running out.  Big law firms do not work for nothing.  Every hour, nay, every minute by every fee earner must be accounted for.  As a legal secretary, one of my joyous tasks was filling in timesheets and they are regularly audited.  The costs for the barristers they used would have run into hundreds of thousands of pounds. Their action against Tony was a hollow victory that cost them dear.  More are questioning the story than ever before.  Meanwhile costs are clocking up in the UK and Portugal. Isabel is not a Junior Partner. Looking at those desolate pictures of the 12th May, I can't help but wonder if they had just been presented with another of their multiple solicitors' bills.

They have damaged search imo,  wasted fund money on suing even the Inspector in case, just for writing a book in  which his theory was expressed, legal fees,morgage payments,PR staff etc. Why bother with film again,at this point,when just told by SY she could be alive and if find soothing couple or this gang could be found as arrests in weeks likely. They seem delusional to me, what would make them think the inspector is going to be made,to give them one million pounds or whatever it is they want now just because of his most logical theory being in print !  The Board of the fund, sound odd to me to, they should be checking funds spent wisely,and  surely in maddys best interest 1st.? Do  they also think that they can be ONLY ONES who make money out of maddys misfortune and disappearance as she has a fund set up to find her !and they own all the rights or something. If they find soothing couple who we all hope they will soon, or there was abductors from this gang she will be home soon anyway !:spin:odd behaviour and all as  confusing as  imo. thanks for posting article above, will have a read later but noted,it did not mention:links to police etc eg: STU  All the dog alerts.DNA is ambiguous data/judgement can be subjective at time Portugal, results rendered inconclusive! The abductor could have been one of the contributors for all we know. Phots from holiday makers were not passed to investigation team by jim gamble it was said, also Information was also not sent to Portugal needed including gasper statements until 6 months or so later apparently which is further odd behaviours around case still imo.Childeren,elderly,sick and good generous people not just british public,have kindly given to that fund !spin Could they not get police to get refunds from the dogy detectives they hired to help ? or the man who has done film to help may give a donantion to fund ! cant understand why article and comments now whooshed it was Mccanns who said they thought daughter had been abducted by a paedophile from day one, they and friends refused to take part in reinactment so imo this may be helpful for missing maddy. Also SY review only just finished and now full investigation so fund probably wont be needed now one would think imo:spin:

could be free dvd of movie with every newspaper next ! with comments allowed for film  review then whooshed :spin:heres hoping no movie that has any input from CM or  Mcs only version is made. No wonder Wee Lorraine said good idea in 2008 as she would be one of stars in their version on her boring sofa ! Usual parents out to dine, no mention of the child neglect or the boozing would be allowed etc ! no egg man,doggy detectives  or STU. Daft Journalists,etc or any favourites would be given a part so yawn yawn to film with there input,even if they did get brand rights of maddyFund. that's sick even just to type imo who would give a monkeys about what an inspector wrote if daughter missing presumed to be with paedo.or a film in 2008 ! or now 2013 with recent SY announcements and 38 arrests could be happening anyday and maddy found ! ? this behaviour would seem like they don't think that is likely at all if need to top up fund as running out !

 Sorry Sheila but I disagree.


The "fury" is what will compel the McCanns, reluctantly, to sell the film rights to "set the record straight". 


Absolutely nothing to do with the money they will receive ...nope ...nothing to do with money ...no no no ...who said anything about money?

Kate always boils her blood if she perceives people as making money. But when she is rolling it in with merchandise and bewk, that is perfectly OK.

Bet she regrets not getting her book deal in first.
