A film could be made about Madeleine McCann's disappearance after talks with a major entertainment company. (Advertisement) Her parents are considering giving permission for IMG to make a movie or documentary. Their spokesman confirmed to Sky News Online that a meeting with the firm took place last month. But he said Gerry and Kate McCann did not attend and stressed nothing has yet been agreed. Clarence Mitchell said a film would only be considered if the McCanns believed it would help raise awareness of the case or help fund the private search for Madeleine. IMG, the firm behind the award-winning drama-documentary Touching The Void, made the initial approach, it is thought. The resulting meeting in mid-December discussed the possibility of making the story of four-year-old Madeleine into either a film or a TV drama. Mr and Mrs McCann were aware of the meeting but did not attend in person. Instead, Mr Mitchell and another representative of the McCanns met IMG at the firm's London offices. The spokesman said: "We have only had one discussion with IMG. It may or may not happen. "If we feel any particular proposal in the media has validity in helping us find Madeleine, we are happy to discuss it." Mr Mitchell said it was just one of many approaches that have been made by media companies over the missing girl, who vanished from her family's holiday apartment in Portugal in May. In a statement, Darlow Smithson Productions, a production company owned by IMG, said: "Darlow Smithson had a preliminary meeting with representatives of the McCanns about the possibility of an observational documentary following the ongoing search for Madeleine. "Discussions are still at a very early stage and the issue of money has never been raised."
