Danielle Campbell shows a bit of her midriff in a hot pink lace dress at the premiere of Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection held at AMC Lincoln Square Theater on Monday night (June 25) in New York City.
JJJ caught up with the 17-year-old actress earlier last week, where she was waiting to catch a flight to her uncle’s wedding, to chat about the upcoming flick.
“Oh, it was so much fun!” Danielle dished of her bratty role. “There was one scene where Tyler Perry throws a bucket of water on me because I’m mouthing off. We had to be really angry, so we were screaming things at each other and it was so funny. At one point the director called cut and we were both cracking up! That was my favorite scene. It was definitely a lot of fun playing this character.”
Danielle added, “We had to be prepared right when the camera was ready [for the scene]. I got lucky…the water only had to be dumped on me once.”

There are a ton of bonus features too! On the Bluray, you’ll get bloopers (of course), Putting on PROM: The Making of a Featurette, “Last Chance Lloyd” short, four deleted scenes and SEVEN music videos!
Movie summary: At Prom, every couple has a story and no two are exactly alike. For Nova Prescott (Teegarden), itâ€™s a classic tale of opposites attracting when she finds herself drawn to the guy (McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom.
You’ve got the dress, the shoes, your hair is done, your nails are beautified, your date is knocking on your door…did you forget anything?
Music! You have to have some good tunes while you’re on your way to the venue, right?
Prom producer Justin Springer told JJJ about the official soundtrack to the movie, “Music is such an important part of any movie, and especially in teen movies. We sourced everyone and everything we had. From myself to our music director to Joe Nussbaum, the director and we also asked the cast for input. It’s like casting for a movie. I’m not sure what song came from who or who suggested it, but it made for a great soundtrack.”
Check out Moon‘s “Time Stand” music video below — it was even directed by Thomas McDonell.
We shot these new pics a couple of weeks ago at the same school they filmed in — John Burrows Middle School in Los Angeles.
Every prom has to have a theme right? Or, most of them do. When we asked director Joe Nussbaum about Prom‘s prom theme, Starry Night, this is what he told us:
“It actually wasn’t Starry Night in the beginning. It was Enchanted Jungle. One of the things I wanted to have early one is have a muted, interesting color palette for the look and feel of it, so everything was earthy and real. There was nothing really overly bright, glitzy or shiny. I had pictured this jungle with bright toucans and just in your face colors. It wasn’t working.
“We needed something else that can be muted and still romantic. There were other themes thrown at us, like Midnight in Paris, which was too specific for us. We went through a lot of themes, but Starry Night really stuck with us because it can be done so many ways. You can do mylar balloons and cardboard cutouts or you can do really classy like with the Vincent Van Gogh painting. The rich blues and orange glow just really stuck with us.”
JJJ Fun Fact: John Burrows Middle School is the same school they filmed Pretty in Pink at!
