- Oliver Reed
- Leslie Nielsen
- Len Cariou
The film was given a budget of $3.5 million and was from Granicus Film Productions, a company based in Saskatoon by producer Boden Wouk.
Filming was to have started in Canmore in November 1978. However it was delayed two weeks as they waited for $500,000 to arrive from the Government of Saskatchewan. A member of the crew said "It was a good script, and there was a lot of momentum built up, but now it's all gone. The producer just didn't realize what he was getting into. We were a fair way into preparation - the cast was being trained to operate rifles, for instance - and some people were paid while others received per diem the first week. For most, there was nothing the second week. It was all pretty shoddy."
Wouk blamed the Saskatchewan Government although he admitted he never got a guarantee from any branch of the Government.
