CROSSFIRE TRAIL marks the second pairing of Tom Selleck and executive producer Michael Brandman, who teamed up for 1997's LAST STAND AT SOBER RIVER, which at the time of its premiere was the most-watched basic cable movie ever. Although it is notoriously difficult to secure the rights to a Louis L'Amour novel, Selleck's close friendship with the author, as well as his wife, made it possible for him to bring CROSSFIRE TRAIL to life on screen.
