Here is an excerpt from Anno's 2013 interview with Kazuo Koike (thread/15478/Hideaki-Anno-x-Kazuo-Koike-October-22-2013/):
We had no time for episode 25, so we remade it for the theatrical edition. The final episode, episode 26, was going to be that way originally. In the scene in episode 16 which depicts a conversation between Shinji and the angel, Tsurumaki-san forbade [the angel's use of] Japanese. So due to that, the theme became from then on conversations with oneself, and it ended with the question of how you can come to terms with other people. We did [the finale] in four days. We did the voice recording first, and then drew the storyboards.

It's been a few months, but I managed to stumble upon it by total accident. From an interview with Toshio Okada, here's the link detailing the statement: http://web.archive.org/web/200012171630 ... king8.html

And the Evageeks thread where this was posted: http://egforum.cassland.org/thread/1002 ... onneamise/

But to quote the guy:

"I talked with Mr. Anno about this a month ago, and then he said, "I'm *almost* the producer of NGE, but I must be so, because Tatsunoko did not do anything for NGE." See, he is very disappointed with Tatsunoko, and some rumors have said that Tatsunoko lost the film, or cels before they were shot. (...) I asked Mr. Anno, "Is it the truth?" And he says, in a dark voice, "Yes." "

Hopefully, that should clear things up a little bit.

Is the "lost film" mentioned here the original film for Episode 16?

Yes. The next answer in the linked interview is:
OKADA: But that was in the middle of the episodes. That wasn't the trouble with the last two episodes, the confusion.
