This later became a more common practice in the film industry, but was unusual at the time. Although Lloyd had both Richard Burton and Roger Moore in mind for their respective roles from a relatively early stage, other casting decisions were more difficult. As the mercenaries were mostly composed of military veterans some of whom had fought under Faulkner's command before , it was necessary to cast a number of older actors and extras into these physically demanding roles.
A number of veterans and actual mercenary soldiers appeared in the film.
Northern Irish actor Stephen Boyd , a close friend of Lloyd's, was originally set to star as Sandy Young, the sergeant major who trains the mercenaries before their mission. However, Boyd died shortly before filming commenced and Jack Watson was chosen as a late replacement. Lloyd had offered the part of the banker Matheson to his friend Joseph Cotten. However, scheduling difficulties meant that he also had to be replaced, this time by Stewart Granger. Burt Lancaster originally hoped to play the part of Rafer Janders who in Carney's book was an American living in London.
However, Lancaster wanted the part substantially altered and enlarged.

The producers declined and in his place chose Richard Harris. So, as I wanted him for the part, I took the gamble. And it was a gamble. If he'd misbehaved and he'd started losing days it would have come out of my pocket. Lloyd hesitated before offering the role of Witty, the gay medic, to his longtime friend Kenneth Griffith. When finally approached, Griffith said "Some of my dearest friends in the world are homosexuals!
Ladd played the drug-dealing nephew of a London-based mob boss Jeff Corey , and Baker played the young mercenary Esposito. With the cast made up from so many veteran actors, Baker claimed that the only reason he stayed alive in the plot so long was that he was one of the few actors young and fit enough to carry President Limbani for any period of time. David Ladd's character's girlfriend in the film was played by Anna Bergman , the daughter of Ingmar Bergman ,.
Ian Yule, who played Tosh Donaldson, had been a real mercenary in Africa in the s and s. John Kani played Jesse Blake, a mercenary who had previously served with Faulkner and was struggling to live before the chance to work with Faulkner again.
Palitoy based the figure "Tom Stone" part of the Action Man team on the character Blake after looking at the pre-production photos and posters of the film. Subsequently, some modifications to the figure were made.
Kani made his debut in the film after years of acting and stage performances with Winston Ntshona. Ntshona was Limbani in the film and continued to make many more films with Kani after The Wild Geese. Kani and Ntshona say they both turned down roles in the film at first after hearing it would be about mercenaries.
However they changed their mind after reading the script. Rosalind Lloyd , who played Heather, is Euan Lloyd's daughter. Her mother, actress Jane Hylton , played Mrs Young. Principal filming took place in South Africa in the summer and autumn of , with additional studio filming at Twickenham Film Studios in Middlesex.
