It would seem that even Jason Statham has his limits. The action star doesn't always have the most discerning decision making process, and combined with a rather limited and defined range, it means his movies usually fit into a very specific box. But when it comes to the franchise that made his name, he's walking away from it slowly (as something surely explodes behind him).
