(LOS ANGELES) -- With a snapshot of a movie clapper board and the clever caption "HAN FIRST SHOT" -- a take on the Star Wars fan gripe "Han Shot First" -- Chris Miller has let everyone know that he and co-director Phil Lord's production of the movie about Han Solo's younger days is now underway.  Also clever: the movie's on-set code name, Red Cup. Get it?  Solo?  As in Red Solo Cup? Alden Ehrenreich stars as a younger version of the scoundrel famously played by Harrison Ford in the Star Wars movies.
