Why not just keep McGlynn? She's already played Kusanagi in both the movie (sequel) and TV continuities, as did the original Japanese actress Atsuko Tanaka. So why not continue to use her for a third continuity?
I'm guessing he doesn't like her performance (which was terrible in the first movie, to be fair).
McGlynn did not play the Major in the first movie's English dub; Mimi Woods did. The first movie had an almost completely different dub cast than the group that's done subsequent GitS productions; the only performers in common were Richard Epcar as Batou and William Knight as Aramaki. The original film's dub was quite poor in a lot of respects.
