Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Could have taken inspiration from "The Divine Comedy" (Dante's Inferno). Bradley Thomas (Vince Vaughn) has to get himself to the area of the prison with the highest security in Cell Block 99 by fighting other inmates and guards, which guarantees he'll never get out of prison. He does this to save his wife, which can be compared to Dante's journey to the ninth circle of hell.
