(inspired by some older threads abuot this stuff)
It's 1975. Giant Size X-Men 1 has just come out and everyone loves it. Instantly Hollywood jumps at the chance to make a movie out of the property, using all the best talent.
So, who get's cast. Remember, it's 1975. Who could play the X-Men from that era, during that era? Who would you want to direct?

X-Men 1975, Director Lewis Gilbert
Professor X ~ Telly Savalas
Cylops ~ Robbie Benson
Marvel Girl ~ Glynis O'Connor
Beast ~ Randy Quaid
Iceman ~ Bud Cort
Angel ~ John Savage
Storm ~ Pam Grier
Colossus ~ Richard Kiel
Nightcrawler ~ Al Pacino
Thunderbird ~ August Schellenberg
Count Nafaria ~ Omar Sharif
I'd blend the "living island" story with Count Nefaria's, largely because of SFX abilities pre-"Star Wars," and because the death of Thunderbird gives it the edge that 70's films had. I can't recall the various Ani-Men now, but if someone can supply the info, I'll adjust accordingly. There are a few characters I've left out, as the constraints of a film require.

Here's some of my ideas.
X-Men- Directed by Richard Donner
Cyclops- Richard Hatch
Wolverine- Lee Majors
Collossus- Arnold Scwartzenegger
Angel- Shaun Cassidy
Marvel Girl- Pamela Sue Martin (TV's Nancy Drew)
Storm-Pam Grier is PERFECT, and I love young Pacino as Nightcrawler

Charles Bronson as Wolverine
Lee Marvin as Prof. Xavier

Angel- Shaun Cassidy
Shaun Cassidy should play Banshee. ;)
I haven't figured out all the casting, but here are some picks:
Wolverine: Clint Eastwood
Jean Grey: Peggy Lipton
Banshee: Kirk Douglas
Thunderbird: Wes Studi
Sunfire: Yakusho Koji
Beast: Michael Miller (played Monk Mayfair in the Doc Savage movie)
I think that Ontir's idea of including the Nefaria storyline is great, and I can't think of a better Nefaria than Omar Sharif.

You guys are forgetting: At this point, the Batman TV series and movie are in fresh memory, and Donner's Superman is two years hence.
Therefore, four little words that will chill your soul:
Adam West as Wolverine.
