disconnect the shifter from the trans to make sure it isnt an internal trans problem

if the shifter still doesnt move, there is a shift interlock solenoid on the column, make sure you have power and ground to the solenoid and replace it if you do. you will only have power to it when your foot is on the brake and the ignition is in the on or run position
