Just a guess but the shifter linkage may need adjusting. Has your car been in an accident?

What Engine and Transmission? Mileage? Any Maintenance/Repair done lately?

As a safety feature you have to step on the brake before you can shift out of park. Does this problem only occur when shifting out of park? If so there is a linkage that is out of adjustment.
