Life Imitates O Brother, Where art Thou

From the NY Daily News: Two accused killers and an armed robbery suspect attacked a jailer, then escaped from a prison in rural Alabama, authorities said.
The FBI and the U.S. Marshal's Service are part of the search team, along with tracking dogs and Choctaw County Sheriff's deputies.
"I've got three bad inmates - two capital murders and one armed robber - who are on foot. They took off from the jail," said Choctaw County Sheriff Tom Abate, the news website reported.
Demarcus Woodard, 23, Gemayel Culbert, 32, and Jestin Terrell Gordon, 23, broke out of jail about 2 a.m., the Choctaw Sun-Advocate said. Culbert and Woodard are wanted for murder.
All three were in the same cell, when one of them began shouting that his cell mate was sick. When the jailer walked into the cell to investigate, the three men overpowered him and took the jail keys and his cell phone, the paper reported.
Hunting dogs tracked the trio a local highway about a quarter of mile away. The men may have been picked up by an accomplice, authorities said.
And of course, "O Brother, Where Art Thou: In 1937, Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney), Pete Hogwallop (John Turturro), and Delmar O'Donnell (Tim Blake Nelson) escape from a chain gang at Parchman Farm and set out to retrieve the $1,200,000 in treasure that Everett claims to have stolen from an armored car and buried before his incarceration. They have four days to find it before the valley in which it is hidden will be flooded to create Arkabutla Lake as part of a new hydroelectric project. Early in their escape, while still chained together, they try to jump onto a moving train, but are dragged off when Pete trips. They then encounter a blind man (Lee Weaver) traveling on a handcar. They hitch a ride, and he tells their futures. They "seek a great fortune" and they will "find a fortune, though it will not be the one they seek." They will also see many wonders on their journey, including a "cow on the roof of a cotton house.",_Where_Art_Thou%3F#Plot_summary
