Following a successful theatrical run of episodes of HBO series "Game of Thrones," IMAX has its sights set on another successful TV show: "The Walking Dead."

Greg Foster, senior executive vice president and CEO of IMAX Entertainment, revealed during a recent presentation to investors that the company was interested in expanding its offerings of television episodes on the big screen.

"We'll be looking for more content like 'Game of Thrones,'" Foster told investors. "A high bar to kind of strive for would be 'The Walking Dead,' and we have had conversations with our pals at the AMC network about that."

Earlier this year, IMAX screened the final two episodes of "Game of Thrones"'s fourth season, along with a sneak preview of season five that was created exclusively for the event. The stunt was apparently a success, leading the company to search for other properties interested in making the jump from the small to the big screen.

While Foster told investors that the "Walking Dead" partnership was nowhere near a done deal, the exec said IMAX was very interested in making it happen. "[W]e're looking for more epic content that's in line with the IMAX experience," Foster said. (And how epic would Rick's disgusting zombie kill from the season five finale look on an IMAX screen?)

Stay tuned to see if AMC bites.
