That character immediately read to me as Cliff Booth (and Tarantino has clarified in other interviews that Cliff's war experience was WWII, specifically, I believe), so I wonder if perhaps it was translated/rephrased awkwardly to make it sound like an upcoming project when it's actually not.
It's not Cliff Booth, as we see him getting a bunch of enjoyment out of Hollywood films in 1969. More than one man fought in WWII, if you (and those who theorized that Booth was somehow meant to be an older Aldo Raine) can believe it!
I didn't say it was definitely Cliff, and it's entirely possible that someone who found something "juvenile" in one decade may at the very least be able to get a bunch of enjoyment out of the same thing roughly 15 years later—if you can believe it!

“Seething in my seat” = “Omigod I cant wait to put on Twitter that Tarantino is on my plane!!!”

My favorite part is how she indulges in the stereotypes of women being overly emotional AND overly passive-aggressive AND just overly kinda ditzy (e.g., “adult behavior”) in service of condemning someone else’s portrayal of women. My feeling is that Tarantino could hardly do worse.

Maybe we should all just quit the internet.

It's why I stopped going on Twitter. Everyone is a badass behind a keyboard and screen Brian.

I owe DuVernay an apology - she wasn't agreeing with the sentiment of that tweet. GIFs, how do they work?

I'm not sure most of these stories make their authors look like badasses.

I was being facetious and I'm sorry I didn't make that clearer. I'm simply referring to people on Twitter's penchant for over the top drama all the time.

I don’t know why every current release thread needs to have a Twitter drama recap, and don’t really want to contribute, but how hard is it to just not follow people that engage with this nonsense? I never see this stuff on my feed unless it’s being explicitly mocked. Find better people to follow. (I’ve also never understood the concept of getting mad online but that’s a whole other thing)

It's entertaining, to me at least, because of how low impact it ultimately is

Agreed. I’d rather not see comments from some twitter twit in his dedicated thread either, but I guess first things fuckin’ last...
