A Sentimental Man might need to stay in, but the others wouldn't really be big losses.
Samantha Barks would be my choice for the movie IF she had performed the role on stage.
No, I don't think Naya could sing it either, but I'd much rather hear her try than Lea. I don't think either of them are capable of doing it.
And I don't see why you're ruling Sam out just because she hasn't performed the role on stage. The movie and the stage show will be, as Les Mis has proved, entirely different beasts. I don't see the logic behind ruling someone out just because they haven't performed it on stage. It certainly won't be too much of an advantage to have already done it on stage.
They might not even do Wicked with live singing, so the vocal capability requirement might not end up being as high as it is onstage anyway.

At the minute I am more interested in Into the Woods as a movie though I feel like if it was done right it would have every chance at being as well adapted as Les Miserablès plus I think they may go down the live singing route for it too it should be infront of cameras soon too so only time will tell.
As for the Wicked movie they will probably incorporate the book into it more and make it a tad darker I just hope they don't overdo it with CGI they should make the sets and characters as practical as possible.

you don't need to get defensive.
i merely pointed out she got the role as cameron mackintosh loves her, which he does, she's played his role for years now and done a brilliant job. she didn't audition like EVERYBODY either.
none of the other eponines or fanzines from the show got seen for the part of eponine as they were looking for hollywood stars. like the rest of the cast. she got seen for it as cameron put her name in for it. because he loves her!
anyway. i also meant that a lot of the cast of glee are limited with their direction but if you check out their individual youtube links to their singing out of glee, its hard to find a weak singer in there. they're all amazing.
i just feel the only time i've ever heard sam barks tackle elphaba is at one of her concerts- not strong enough. SORRY BUT NOT STRONG ENOUGH AT ALL.
And having seen her nancy she's only just starting to get to grips with that level of belting.
he voice sits naturally in quite a clean and mellow place.
again these are all just my silly opinions an i dont wanna rattle anyones tail feathers!
