LENINGRAD, Russia, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Russian prosecutors said administrators at a prison were reprimanded for showing female inmates "The Next Three Days," a movie depicting a jailbreak.

Leningrad Region prosecutors released a statement saying prison officials signed off on showing the 2010 film despite the plot of the movie involving Russell Crowe's character staging a jailbreak for his wife, played by Elizabeth Banks, RIA Novosti reported Thursday.

The statement said the film "fails to promote correction of inmates and prevention of new crimes."

The prosecutors reprimanded the prison administrators and confiscated the movie, which the statement dubbed a "Hollywood jailbreak manual."
