The hackers infiltrating Sony Pictures have claimed they will walk away from the cyber siege if "The Interview" never airs.

Titled "Message from GOP," the tome from Guardians of Peace insists they hold no further ill will towards Sony after the studio's "very wise" decision to can the film.

The hackers sent the message directly to studio executives, according to CNN.

"Now we want you never let the movie released, distributed or leaked in any form of, for instance, DVD or piracy," said GOP.

"And we want everything related to the movie, including its trailers, as well as its full version down from any website hosting them immediately."

The hackers claim to "still have your private and sensitive data" but bizarrely insist they will "ensure the security of your data unless you make additional trouble."

The studio announced Wednesday the Judd Apatow produced satirization of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un's assassination would not debut December 25, as originally planned.

The cancellation came after a chilling terror threat made by GOP against any theaters screening the film. U.S. officials now believe the group is affiliated with North Korea.

GOP has been systematically leaking emails, documents and other files while threatening the studio, its employees and even their families.

The crippling hack forced Sony employees to abandon their handhelds and computers to work in an office "from 10 years ago" as the siege carried on.

This latest message implies the leaks will stop and the hackers will simply retreat back into the ether from which they emerged.
