Is there one been planned?
I kind of hope not. I re-watched the original recently and it really holds up well over time. The shark looks more fake now than it used to, but that didn't bother me. The acting is what really makes it a strong movie, and I don't see a remake improving on that part of it.
They would either have to set the story in the 1970s, come up with a new background for Quint (who was a survivor of the U.S.S. Indianapolis sinking in World War II), or they would have to redo the entire story with new context.

I've heard that real survivors of the disaster walked out of the theaters because Robert Shaw's acting was so convincing.
