Abstract
Eleven-dimensional supergravity is reformulated in a way suggested by compactifications to four dimensions. The new version has local SU(8) invariance. The bosonic quantities that pertain to the spin-0 fields constitute 56- and 133- dimensional representations of E7(+7). Some implications of our results for the S7 compactification are discussed.
