Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- Lindsay Lohan does not have a film shoot in Texas next month, contrary to what the actress's lawyer told a judge Monday, according to a movie studio.

Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, asked Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel to reconsider ordering Lohan to wear an alcohol-detecting ankle bracelet because it would interfere with her filming.

"Miss Lohan has indicated to me that she has been told that there are scenes she must reshoot for the 'Machete' film," Holley told CNN Tuesday. "I believe her and, for that reason, I mentioned it to the judge."

But a spokesman for 20th Century Fox told CNN Tuesday that "Machete" is well into post-production already and no reshoots are scheduled.

Lohan was cast as the daughter of the title character in the film, which is expected to hit theaters in early September.

Judge Revel was not swayed by Holley's appeal. She said the 23-year-old actress must remain in the Los Angeles area so she will be available for random drug testing.

"It's going to be drug testing here," meaning in California, Revel said.

The SCRAM (Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring) ankle bracelet and random drug tests were among several new bail conditions imposed on Lohan by the judge until there is a probation revocation hearing on July 6.

Revel also prohibited Lohan from drinking alcohol or missing any weekly alcohol counseling sessions.

The SCRAM bracelet samples perspiration on the skin every half hour to detect if the wearer has ingested alcohol, according to an online fact sheet posted by its maker, Alcohol Monitoring Systems Inc. The bracelet collects data and transmits it to a monitoring location.

Random drug testing was ordered because of previous evidence that Lohan was under the influence of cocaine, Revel said last week.

It was Lohan's alleged failure to attend alcohol counseling classes, ordered after a 2007 drunken driving conviction, that landed her back in court this month.

Holley told Revel that Lohan missed her session last week because her uncle died.

"Did she go to the funeral?" Revel asked.

"She did not," Holley answered.

Lohan's failure to show up for court as ordered last Thursday prompted the judge then to rule there was "probable cause to believe (Lohan) is in violation of probation."

Holley told the judge that Lohan was unable to catch a flight from France two days earlier because she had lost her passport at the Cannes Film Festival.

Prosecutor Danette Meyers on Monday asked for proof that Lohan had a ticket to fly back to the United States in time for last week's hearing. Holley said she has the proof and will show it to the court.

During last week's hearing, the judge revoked Lohan's probation, issued an arrest warrant and imposed the new conditions.

"I warned her before," Revel said. "She knew it was very serious."

Lohan was not arrested when she finally arrived in Los Angeles from France Saturday because her $100,000 bond had already been posted.

Lohan traveled to France last week to promote her newest movie role as 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace.

She was arrested twice in 2007 on charges of driving under the influence and in the second incident also was charged with cocaine possession.

The first arrest came after Lohan lost control of her Mercedes-Benz convertible and struck a curb in Beverly Hills.

Just two weeks after checking out of a Malibu drug and alcohol rehab facility, she was arrested again in July 2007 after a woman called Santa Monica police, saying Lohan was trying to run her down with a car.
