1996 and 2/3: TV show pitch

Twenty years ago, FBI agent Cameron Archer (Nic Cage) underwent experimental surgery to trade faces with terrorist Vic Troy (John Travolta) in order to shut down Troy's criminal organization. Things went sideways when Archer, wearing Troy's face, was caught by his FBI partner Riley Hale (Christian Slater) and sentenced to life in prison. Troy has infiltrated Archer's life - his family, the FBI - and has been living as Archer for two decades.

Now, Archer is forced to make a daring escape during a prison transfer by plane to get his old life back. Teaming up with notorious criminals (including John Malkovich and Dave Chappelle), and hunted by US Marshall Vince Larkin (John Cusack), Archer is taking over Troy's organization to bring it down.

Troy is pulled into the hunt for Archer, as Hale starts to have doubts about his partner. It's a game of cat and mouse and confused identities as the villainous Troy plays both sides - he likes the life he stole and it's slipping away. But Troy has an ace up his sleeve: a stolen nuke, somewhere in the desert...
