The third one ('Die Hard with a Vengeance', with Samuel L. Jackson and Jeremy Irons co-starring) was an action script that had floated around Hollywood for awhile, called 'Simon Says' (because that was the bad guy's game). It might have been a stand-alone feature, it might have been a Lethal Weapon film... and then it became Die Hard 3. Always thought that was kinda interesting (and then, it was a pretty good movie, too, I thought).
For the new one ('A Good Day To Die Hard'), Aaron Paul had been up for the role of McClane's son. Since it turned out to be just another dumb, forgettable movie, it's for the best that he didn't get it (couldn't do it, I think, schedule-wise)...
