(Salt Lake City-AP) -- In the five days since Elizabeth Smart returned home, the family's spokesman has fielded more than three thousand media calls and opened nearly 100 film, book or made-for-TV-movie proposals.

Chris Thomas, a spokesman for parents Ed and Lois Smart, said they will begin to review production offers in the next few weeks.

He said, "It's something that they're going to deal with soon. They're trying to figure this all out -- it comes down to let someone else tell the story, or tell it themselves."

U-S-A, A-B-C, N-B-C, C-B-S and Lifetime are all reportedly interested in obtaining rights to the story.

Thomas said the family has not begun to consider a price, because they haven't decided yet whether to go along with any production, movie or book.
