I agree with this. Plus, I still kind of got the impression from the Marvel panel at Comic Con last year that Wright wanted to use Lang.
Personally, what I could see happening is Marvel persuading Wright to drop the "Pym was Ant-Man in the 60's" angle and moving his story up to the present day. Allowing them to still use him in any Avengers sequels while Wright does his adaption of "To Steal Ant-Man" in the solo film with Lang.
