The Wicked movie might actually happening soon-ish, with Jon M. Chu directing
no casting announced yet, but Amanda Seyfried is ready to play Glinda. She has sent Chu a video of her singing Popular
she also has casting ideas for Elphaba:
“For a while it was Anna Kendrick, because I thought that her Elphaba would be really solid, and you know, I sing the high notes and she can sing, she can be the alto. At one point, it was Anne Hathaway, too. She could obviously be Elphaba.
There’s nobody else like Samantha Barks. Samantha is my No. 1. I mean, there’s no better singer in the world I think.”
