If your hedge is growing in a spot where exposure to the wind is such that the branches have been distorted, the likelihood is that any new growth will be distorted too. I do love the almost topiarised appearance of hedges that have been sculpted hard by the wind - do I take it you live on the coast?
Eleagnus can cope with being cut hard back, but I'm not sure what useful purpose will be served to cut it back further than you have done already. I believe that by this time next year it will have thrown out new growth and will be filling out nicely
