Is it possible to prune my very overgrown (almost a mini tree) pittosporum into a hedge?

My pittosporums haven’t been trimmed/pruned in years (would be more than 5 years, if not since they were planted). They are very tall and have an almost tree like appearance - the top half is full of green leaves but the bottom half is practically a thin tree trunk with the very occasional baby branch coming from it. My mum planted them with the hopes of pruning them into a hedge/screen but sadly got sick many years ago and the whole garden is overgrown - I was wondering if it’s possible to trim them to somehow encourage growth at the bottom of the plant as well as the top (so it becomes bushier as well as more of a screen) or would that kill the plant and stunt the growth?
