DreamWorks has hired Win Win director Thomas McCarthy to write the family comedy Home Movies.

The story centers on an ordinary man who discovers he can not only revisit moments in his life through home movies, but he can also change the events. The story was originated by writer Jared Stern.

It isn't clear if Thomas McCarthy will also direct Home Movies. Aside from Win Win, he has written and directed The Station Agent and The Visitor.

Shawn Levy is producing Home Movies alongside Bruce Nash and Robert Kosberg. No production schedule was given for Home Movies as of yet.
