The 25-year-old actress has been paid around US$1 million to pose naked in the world famous men's magazine but she is going to have to strip off for the cameras again after bosses decided they weren't satisfied with the first set of shots.
A source told RadarOnline.com: "Lindsay was told the Playboy executives wanted to go in another direction with her shoot so they asked her to come back for a second time.
"The first pictures of Lindsay weren't exactly what they wanted so they have a new theme that they want to shoot."
The second shoot has been scheduled to take place next Thursday and Lindsay is due to grace the January front cover of Hugh Hefner's publication. Nude frontal photos are expected to be included in the spread.
The source added: "There is never a guarantee that everyone will like the photos or that they will be of high enough quality to use for the cover but Playboy wanted to make sure that Lindsay's pictures were exactly what they wanted."
Earlier this week, Lindsay was sentenced to 300 days in jail after admitting she had violated the terms of her probation in relation to a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) case, by failing to show up at community service appointments at a women's shelter in Los Angeles.
The Mean Girls star must surrender to Los Angeles county jail by November 9 and, despite the length of the sentence, she will only serve 30 days behind bars.
Lindsay must also perform all of her community service at a morgue and complete 19 psycho-therapy sessions by March 29, 2012.
